SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — Hero Nutritionals on Thursday accepted the 2014 Taste for Life Essentials Award for its Slice of Life Sugar Free Multi+, a gummy vitamin and mineral supplement for adults. Naturally sweetened from fruit, Slice of Life Sugar Free Multi+ gives consumers a gummy vitamin option for adults that is made without any sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners.
Slice of Life Sugar Free Multi+ was recognized by Taste for Life magazine due to the low glycemic sweetening ingredient, Lo Han Fruit, also known as Monk fruit, which has no calories and is 300 times sweeter than sugar, yet does not elevate insulin levels. “It is an honor to continue in the Hero tradition of providing 'firsts' to the health-conscious consumer with the first truly healthy and great-tasting sugar-free gummy multivitamin,” stated Claire Polson, Hero Nutritionals’ national sales manager.
The multivitamin blend of Slice of Life Sugar Free Multi+ includes lutein and lycopene, which support eye health, and chromium to help maintain healthy blood-sugar levels. The formulation also includes 16 vitamins, including vitamins A, C, D, E and B-complex vitamins.
