Looking for Sugar Replacement here in Singapore

Postby sundaymorningstaple » Sun, 27 Jul 2008 2:46 pm

I am looking for Xylitol which is a natural sugar replacement with a very low GI of 7 and 75% less carbs than sugar. In it is sold under the brand name of Perfect Sweet™ by SweetLife™ in the UK and "Healthy by Nature Ltd" in the UK.

Anybody using low GI products know where I might find this sugar replacement here in Singapore?

Problem is I don't need a ton of the stuff, only a couple of kg. Thanks ksl, I found that one through Alibaba B2B earlier today. Kooky (seasider) on Singaporum had a link to an online shop which she graciously posted over there this afternoon. Bloody expensive stuff here at $24/lb ($53/kg).

Will try to contact your link tomorrow to see if they actually distribute user sized quantities or only commercial size quantities for food processing industries.
