First Impressions – The Initial Sukrin Reviews Are In!

After months and months of hard work, in the beginning of Summer 2015 we were finally ready to launch the Sukrin line of products on the US market! On June 1st, 2015, we opened the doors to our virtual store – and we started sending out product samples to test if the market would love these products as much as we do. The initial verdict is now in….and the Sukrin reviews are unanimous: Sukrin IS loved as much by the market as by us!

Take a look at some of the excerpts of reviews below – and click the links to read the fantastic, informative, humorous writings of some real spectacular food bloggers:

Fluffy Chix Cook:

“When the boxes arrived and we unloaded our “really big haul,” we couldn’t believe our luck, so MANY products to test! But we did have skepticism. We worried our blood sugar would go cra cra and that everything looked too good to be true. So we tested each product, and none of the low carb sugar subs gave us a spike! The milk chocolate did give Susie a tiny spike of about 20 points, but that is congruent with the spike she sees when eating chocolate. And each low carb, super low calorie sweetener and fiber syrup tasted great! In all, we are stoked that baking as we know it will change from here out. Sukrin USA erythritol based sweeteners and fiber syrups are game changers. The Fluffys give the Sukrin family of zero calorie sweeteners five enthusiastic wings up (equivalent to 5 stars)!”

“Did we mention that we love how Sukrin Milk Chocolate Bars taste? Delish! Just like we remember the real Swiss chocolates tasting that Dad bought at Alfred’s Deli when we were kids. Low carb keto Sukrin Milk Chocolate is creamy, silky smooth, and has a great melt factor on both your hands and your mouth! 😀”

Keto Adapted:

“I love having healthy options and the more the merrier in my opinion.  I have really liked all that I have tried so Sukrin is another great option for the keto lifestyle.”

 

Low Carb Yum:

“There is a great new sweetener available in the US that comes from Europe and it’s going to allow certain homemade sweets to be possible again. I’m talking about the Sukrin line of sweeteners which includes two great syrup sweeteners. One is a clear fiber syrup that can be used similar to corn syrup. The other is a dark syrup that is the perfect substitute for honey and molasses. I’ll be providing a review of the syrups in future posts. This low carb gluten free zucchini apple fritter bread recipe used three of the Sukrin powder/granular sweeteners. All three of these natural origin sweeteners are fabulous as well as non-GMO!”

“The Sukrin Gold is amazing because it looks and feels just like REAL brown sugar. I’m not sure how they did it, but the ingredients are listed as Natural sweetener erythritol (polyol), tagatose, glycerol, malt extract (gluten-free) and steviol glycosides.”

“If you love the convenience of a bread mix, but just don’t have the time or ingredients to make your own from scratch, I highly recommend checking out the low carb bread mixes made by Sukrin.”

 

Mom, Can I Have That?:

“I AM ABSOLUTELY THRILLED to do this post detailing a new low carb product line now available in the United States called Sukrin. Sukrin products are made in Norway by Funksjonell Mat (Functional Foods). They originate from natural, NON-GMO food and are certified gluten-free. Sukrin is popular in Skandinavia and the UK and it’s products are rapidly spreading throughout Europe becoming the low carb product of choice for many Low CarbersDiabetics and those in the Paleo and Keto communities. Luckily, we in the U.S. now have access to these popular products thanks to Sukrin USA.”

“Whoa!

This bread is amazing.

It’s right in my wheelhouse with it’s chewy, nutty texture and flavor. It tastes much like a good European style whole grain or muesli bread – well, because it is! Except it’s low carb, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut free. What? Yes!”

All Day I Dream About Food

“To enhance that flavour even further, I used half Sukrin Gold, a low carb brown sugar replacement. As you know, I favour Swerve as my sweetener of choice, but Sukrin USA asked if I would test out their products and also host a small giveaway for my readers. Since so many of you ask about different sweeteners, I feel strongly that I need to test them out myself. Sukrin Gold is mostly erythritol, with some tagatose, glycerol, malt extract (gluten-free) and sterol glycosides to give it the colour and flavour of brown sugar. I thought it worked very well in the blondies and I think it could be very useful in one’s arsenal of low carb tools.”

“Sukrin also carries two varieties of fiber syrups made from isomaltooligosaccharides, which are sweet-tasting pre-biotic fibers. I think these could be very useful sweeteners but I recommend them with reservations. For me, the jury is still out on whether or not they affect blood sugar levels. I am part of a number of online diabetes support groups and some members have indicated that isomalt syrup gives them a spike. I tested on myself a couple of times and had varied results, with mostly very little increase but one seeming spike (which could, admittedly, have been a fluke of my meter or other circumstances). At this point, I think I will use the syrups sparingly – I am excited to see what they can do for my recipes but think anyone with diabetes should test them carefully on themselves.”

“One thing I was really impressed with from Sukrin were the bread mixes. Although I am inclined to make my own low carb bread from scratch most of the time, I think these are a really great option for a store-bought mix. Possibly the best low carb option for store-bought bread out there (please note that they are not grain-free). Sukrin USA also sells a number of other low carb products, and all in all, I’d give it a low carb thumbs up. Definitely worth checking out.”

    I am a 60 year old woman who has lost about 35 lbs. since June by implementing a low carb lifestyle. My weight loss is solely due to changes in carbohydrate restriction. I say this because I sustained a back injury which led to severe sciatica…between the two, I probably get less exercise than the average sedentary person. In spite of my issues, I don’t feel like an overweight old woman. I’m thrilled to be regaining a body I’m more comfortable with and I hope my weight loss eases the stress on my back and legs (which it should). Pinterest is such a great resource in finding new recipes/blogs/tools/products that I look forward to logging on every day to see what’s new. Today is the 1st time I’ve seen your product line referenced and I look forward to trying your breads and sweeteners. The only problem is that those of us on a limited income might not be able to do so. Thank you for making these products available in the US. Hopefully as sales and distribution grow, the rest will follow.

    Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic results and kudos for making the change! Yes, Pinterest is a valuable resource as are a great number of dedicated blogs. The Sukrin products are manufactured using only the best quality, non-GMO and certified gluten-free ingredients. This of course has an impact on prices – but we still feel that we have succeeded in keeping the pricing at a level comparable to the general US market. We’d love to hear what you think of the products once you get a chance to try them:-)

    Several months ago I came across your web site. Being on a low carb diet, I am always on the hunt for new and healthy products to be substitutes for all the high carb foods out there. Your site is a godsend. Also, being one who loves to cook, I am always willing to try and experiment with different foods and food related items. I placed an order with you and must say, I am very pleased with all the products I ordered. Love the mixes that replace the high carb breads, And I am thrilled with the Sukrin Gold to replace the brown sugar. I have not used my sesame seed flour as yet since I would like to request more sesame seed recipes.
    If I may suggest offering a sample pack of your products along with additional recipes so everyone can enjoy a healthier lifestyle. I expect to be ordering more in the very near future. Glad you have distribution in the USA.

    Dear Susan,

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. Adding recipes to the sample packages is a very good suggestion – we’ll start working on it right away:-) Particularly the “new” products such as Sesame Flour and defatted Almond Flour could probably use a little inspiration. Best.

    Could you please clarify the carb count in the chocolate bars? Not net carbs. I find this confusing:
    “Each milk chocolate 40g bar is only 160 kcal and has only 4 grams of carbohydrate. Sweetened with Sukrin natural origin zero carb and zero calorie sweetener and stevia plant extract, Sukrin chocolate is rich, delicious, and smooth tasting.
    Sweetened with Sukrin and stevia
    Only 4 net carbs and 160 kcal per bar,”
    Thanks!

    pernille says:

    Each bar of chocolate has a total of 15 g carbohydrates of which 11 g are sugar alcohols. As the sugar alcohols are erythritol which will not be metabolized/absorbed at all, the value is given at 4 g per bar.

    Hi Jane,

    Yes, we can ship to Canada. Unfortunately, we cannot ship flat rate but would have to charge the actual shipping costs. If interested in no-obligation quote, please send info to pernille@sukrinusa.com. Thanks:-)

    Greetings, Sukrin! I haven’t been able to find a “Contact Us” option on your website, so I’m resorting to commenting on a blog post. I hope you will find this message, because I’m eager to reach out. Having ordered your samplers for sweeteners and other ingredients, I am even more appreciative of your products for having tried them!

    I have two comments: I was simply delighted to see that you include Tagatose among your ingredients. I was able to obtain and try out Tagatose as a sweetener just before production ceased, and I miss using it very much, especially in low-carb baking. I would like to know where you’re getting your tagatose — in commercial quantities that make the product unavailable to individual consumers, I assume. If you could find a way to market it as a stand-alone sweetener, along with your wonderful fiber-rich sweeteners, it would be such a kindness to consumers the world over.

    Second, while you have reached out to number of bloggers in the low-carb and diabetic-friendly Blogosphere, are you willing to accept recipes on this blog from individuals who are not yet blogging themselves, or who may not have plans to do so? Prior to adopting a low-carb lifestyle 30 months ago, I was a (completely non-commercial) creator of homemade artisanal jams and preserves, and was successful in developing a number of my own recipes. This year I began to experiment with converting those recipes to low-carb/diabetic-friendly versions, with really heartening success. Would you be open to having your sweeteners tested as an ingredient in preserves, jams, relishes, conserves, and chutneys? I would be so happy to give that a try.

    Thank you again for marketing in the US! We have been waiting for you! Happy New Year and a wonderful 2016 to you and all who read this message!

    I stumbled across Sukrin products online and ordered up a box. What a thrill!
    The fiber syrups are wonderful and the sunflower seed bread was delicious.
    I have been low carb for over 6 months and finally feel I can keep going with
    products like these. Excited to incorporate more into my daily cooking.
    Thank you for brining into the US!
