A Rochdale food tech startup Lo-Dough has become the first ever company to be awarded an official “reduced carb” certification by Sugarwise.
The new company, which invented a unique low carb bread alternative, was handed the official certification after tests showed that their product was outstandingly low in carbohydrates compared to any possible competitors. The announcement by Sugarwise means that Lo-Dough is not only recognised officially as a “reduced carb” innovation, but is paving the way for a breakthrough in the dietary, fitness and slimming markets.
Sugarwise is the international certification authority for sugar claims on food and drink, with more than 300 products certified across Europe, Australia, China and the Middle East. Founder and director Rend Platings, who issued Lo-Dough with the certificate this week, claims that Lo-Dough deserved “as much recognition as possible” for it’s unique and healthy food product.
She added: “Lo-Dough is an outstanding startup company which has produced a low carb food product like no other. At around three times less carbs than their closest competitors, it is possible to marry Lo-Dough with optimal nutrition, as well as staying extremely low in carbs and sugars. Lo-Dough not only meets the criteria set by Sugarwise, but they do so by a large margin.
