The topic of what is the best kind of sugar is one of the most sensitive debates in today's progressively health-conscious world. Both Island Maid / Harders Hawaii understands this and works extremely hard to ensure that we only use the best type of sweetener on the market. We achieve this by using only natural cane sugar in all of its Harders Premium Syrups. We feel it is important that our customers are aware of the benefits of using products made out of 100% natural cane sugar compared to products made out of high fructose corn syrup and or artificial sweeteners.
High fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners, like aspartame, are one of the worst sweeteners you can put into your body. Unlike natural cane sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners are highly processed sugars. The higher the number of times a product is processed, the higher the likeliness the product will lose its essential nutrients. On the other hand, natural cane sugar is less processed as compared to high fructose corn syrups and aspartame; and therefore retains much more of its essential nutrients. We believe that out of the many types of sugars and sweeteners out there, natural cane sugar is the best, most natural form of sweetener we can use at this time. Of course as with anything, moderation is key.
