Sugar and Slush
The comparative data show that our traditional varieties already have a relatively low sugar content.
By the way:
Sugar is an important source of energy as well as food and stimulant at the same time. Sugar is simply a carbohydrate and therefore an important source of energy. Although sugar is produced by every green plant as part of photosynthesis, sugar cane and sugar beet are among the few plants that can store sugar in large quantities. The sugar we use is made from these plants.
Sugar is a fuel with a turbo effect.
As a carbohydrate, sugar plays an important role in nutrition. Carbohydrates should provide more than half of the energy the body needs. The brain alone burns about 140 g of glucose a day. This corresponds to about 14 tablespoons of sugar. Pure sugar reaches the blood very quickly via the intestine and from there into the brain. It is therefore ideal when a lot of energy is needed very quickly, for example during sports. As a fast energy supplier, pure sugar is unbeatable. Like any food, sugar should also be consumed moderately.
The sugar-containing slush ice varieties are and will remain the most important pillars of our overall portfolio.
Slusheis made by MonsterSlush™ is so popular with young and old as ice cream of its own kind, i.e. semi-frozen, and is firmly established in the ice cream market.
