Tate & Lyle has launched Light Cane Sugar, the first light sugar that looks and tastes like Tate & Lyle’s ordinary Cane Sugar, yet contains 33 per cent fewer calories. New Tate & Lyle Light Cane sugar makes it easy for people who want to reduce their daily intake of calories. With just 11 calories per spoonful you can enjoy the sweet taste, by sprinkling on your cereal or spooning it into your tea or coffee, and allow the calorie savings to easily add up.Made from Granulated Cane Sugar, sucralose, (a no-calorie sweetener that is made from sugar) and maltodextrin, Tate & Lyle Light Cane looks like ordinary sugar and has all the clean sweet taste, but with only two-thirds the calories. Made from Granulated Cane Sugar, sucralose, (a no-calorie sweetener that is made from sugar) and maltodextrin, Tate & Lyle Light Cane looks like ordinary sugar and has all the clean sweet taste, but with only two-thirds the calories. And because Tate & Lyle Light Cane is made with sugar, it’s just as versatile. It will taste great in your tea or coffee, over your favourite breakfast cereal or sprinkled on fruit - just use it spoon-for-spoon as you would ordinary sugar. You can also cook and bake with it in the same way you would ordinary sugar by using the weight guide on the side of the pack. Tate & Lyle Light Cane sugar is available exclusively throughout Sainsbury’s stores nationwide, priced 99p for a 600g pack.
