In partnership with local startup Nutriient, Melvados, a Singaporean food purveyor, a brand under the Foodedge Gourmet umbrella, proudly introduces the country’s first-ever Low Glycemic Index (GI) Brownie and Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie. These delectable treats are crafted using Melvados’ original recipes and Nutriient’s proprietary Low GI sugar substitute blend, resulting in products with significantly lower sugar levels. This makes them a healthier alternative to conventional snacks and, importantly, a safe and enjoyable choice for individuals with diabetes.
Melvados and Nutriient present the initial offerings in a new line of ‘Better For You’ healthy desserts – the first two being Halal-certified. These delectable treats mark the beginning of a series of health-conscious products, with additional releases planned later in the year.
Crafted to provide a luxurious treat for your palate, every bite of the Low-GI Brownie promises a delectable contrast of rich dark couverture chocolate—a renowned premium chocolate variety—and the delightful nutty crunch from walnuts and ground almonds. With a perfectly balanced texture, the brownie achieves a moist and fudgy interior coupled with a crisp exterior, creating a harmonious fusion of melt-in-your-mouth indulgence and satisfying chewiness.
The Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie carries the same deeply indulgent chocolate flavour, with its rich cocoa contributing to a luxurious and velvety mouthfeel. Inside the cookie, delightful morsels of chocolate chips provide bursts of decadence, elevating the overall flavour profile. Whether paired with a cup of milk or savoured on its own, both the brownie and cookie are guaranteed to satiate your cravings, offering mouth-watering flavours and a delightful texture.
The Low-GI Brownie delivers a substantial nutritional profile with up to 8.1 grams of protein and 4.7 grams of fiber per serving (1 piece), free from artificial preservatives. In comparison, the Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie contains just 13g of sugar, 2.8 grams of protein, and 2.3 grams of fiber per serving (40g packet). Contrasted with Melvados’ traditional double chocolate brownie, the inclusion of Nutriient’s proprietary premix results in a remarkable 25% reduction in sugar, a 50% increase in dietary fiber, and a 15% boost in protein. Beyond their nutritional richness, these products seamlessly integrate into a sustainable diabetic-friendly diet plan, ensuring they do not cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
The Low-GI Brownies come at an affordable price, with a tray of 4 priced at $15.50 and a tray of 10 at $38. Similarly, the Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies are available at $2.90 per pack. These products are conveniently accessible for online purchase and at all Melvados retail outlets across Singapore.
