Sucrose (sugar) has been replaced in these products by a combination of polydextrose, fructose and sucralose. Sucralose is an artificial sweetener derived from sugar. Fructose has a relatively low glycemic index value so is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream, and polydextrose and sucralose have virtually no effect on blood glucose levels.
Ingredients : Apricots (40%), Water, Polydextrose, Fructose, Pectin, Locust Bean Gum, Malic Acid, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate As Preservative, Sucralose A Non-Nutritive Sweetener.
