This recipe will help lower the glycaemic load or rate of sugar into your blood

This is all thanks to the fibre in the Apple Sauce with Apple Custard which comes from the South Australian Gourmet Food Company Apple Fruit Custard with Added Fibre which gives your body 10.9g of dietary fibre in each pouch.

Fibre promotes long-lasting energy and stable blood sugar which helps you to maintain a healthy weight. Fibre is also needed for your gut to work well, promotes a healthy heart, and reduces your risk of certain cancers.

Cinnamon and apples give your body different types of antioxidants to help fight off free radicals. Cinnamon also has anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.

Apples add immune optimising vitamin C as well as more fibre. Apples are a source of pectin which feed the good bacteria in your gut which in turn help them to look after the health of your body. The polyphenols in apples may support healthy blood pressure and reduce your risk of developing type two diabetes.

Polyphenols are a category of chemicals that naturally occur in plants. There are more than 500 unique polyphenols. Collectively, these chemicals are known as phytochemicals. Some researchers have reported that polyphenols may lower the risk for type 2 diabetes. Polyphenols may boost insulin sensitivity, as well as slow down the rate the body digests and absorbs sugar.
