Win 1 of 10 NOMU & SWEETLY hampers

This Diabetes Awareness Month, NOMU and SWEETLY are celebrating their diabetic-friendly products with a fantastic giveaway. These products, which are endorsed by Diabetes South Africa, offer reassurance to those living with diabetes that the condition doesn’t mean you have to cut out delicious sweet treats.

Skinny Hot Chocolate

NOMU is a South African food company that produces a wide range of different items, with their sugar-free offering a small but very significant part of a much bigger family of products.

The stable includes everything from herb and spice rubs and grinders, concentrated liquid stocks, baking cocoa, three delicious vanilla products, a small selection of baking kits and their growing range of award-winning hot chocolate concepts.

Their most successful product, though, is the diabetic-friendly but decadent, guilt-free Skinny Hot Chocolate. The owners of NOMU, Paul and Tracy, designed it around what they felt they needed at home at the time. The idea was to begin with the highest quality, dark, rich cocoa available, to provide a distinctive flavour and then build around that.

From this accidental start, NOMU Skinny Hot Chocolate’s sudden expansion very clearly indicated that there was a lot more they could and should be doing within this market. After many years, the result was launched: SWEETLY Sugar Substitute: ‘Deliciously Designed Nutrition.’

SWEETLY Sugar Substitute and Baking Sugar Substitute

SWEETLY is one of many new brands to appear in the South African market, all very focused on providing alternatives to regular sugars. But SWEETLY is unique: pioneering the idea of being wholly xylitol-free while also offering the closest flavour replacement to ordinary sugar. It is an entirely natural, plant-based sugar substitute that contains zero artificial ingredients and zero xylitol (which is incredibly harmful to animals). It is fully endorsed by Diabetes South Africa and offers a brilliant solution to everyone who enjoys the taste of sugar in their tea, coffee or sprinkled over their morning breakfast – but who wants to cut down on sugar.

And it doesn’t stop with that. SWEETLY also produces a Baking Sugar Substitute: a South African first. This item is specifically formulated and designed as a diabetic friendly baking sugar that allows consumers to bake deliciously sweet treats, as if using regular sugar. This product is all natural and again contains zero xylitol.
