|Health Sciences Group Launches New Shugr Website|
LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Health Sciences Group, Inc. (OTCBB:HESG), provider of innovative nutraceutical products and functional food ingredients derived from natural sources, today announced the launch of a new website for its Swiss Diet Shugr(TM)
The new website -- located at www.shugr.com -- offers visitors comprehensive information on Shugr(TM) and its ingredients as well as other information offering tips for healthy eating and living. The website will be updated regularly to reflect the latest list of Shugr(TM) retailers as well as news and information on specials and new product offerings.
Shugr(TM), a zero-calorie, low glycemic sweetener that tastes and measures like table sugar, is made from sugars that occur naturally in such good-tasting, healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, corn and dairy products. Erythritol is a naturally-occurring sugar commonly found in melon, grapes, mushrooms and soy. Tagatose comes from dairy products, but does not affect people who are lactose intolerant. Tagatose also provides an added health benefit -- prebiotic fiber that promotes intestinal health, much the way yogurt does. Maltodextrin is derived from corn sugar, which is non-GMO and gluten-free. A trace amount of sucralose is added to give Shugr its "high note." All of these ingredients carry a GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) designation for food safety from the US Food & Drug Administration.
