4. What is Nucane Technology that is used in manufacturing Kesari Golden Sugar?

Nucane is a patented technology that manufactures Low GI Sugar naturally without any chemicals or additives. We at Tatva are the first company to bring such an innovative sugar in India. A first of its kind. The shift to a healthier life is often about eating less. But, thanks to NUCANE, it can also be about consuming “better sugar”, too. The natural antioxidants retained in Nucane have been scientifically shown
to work in two important ways:

a)   They actively inhibit digestive enzymes to reduce glucose and fructose absorbed by the body. It’s NUCANE’s unique ability to “decelerate” the absorption of glucose that promotes the low glycemic effect that we hear so many doctors talking about.

b)   The natural antioxidants in Nucane slow the ability of the body’s GLUT 2 protein to transport available glucose into the bloodstream. This helps reduce blood sugar increase and therefore promotes a low glycemic effect.
