HOLYOKE, Mass., Dec 17, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NXT Nutritionals Holdings, Inc. ("NXT Nutritionals") developer and marketer of SUSTA(TM) Natural Sweetener, the great tasting, all-natural, healthier sweetener, today began taking pre-orders on Sustastore.com for SUSTA Bowl, a baking version of its great tasting SUSTA Natural Sweetener, as a result of the great demand that was sparked when NXT Nutritionals' spokesperson Blair Underwood introduced the product on the "The Balancing Act" TV show's special holiday segment, "Home For The Holidays: Healthy Alternatives to Sweeten the Holiday."
"When Blair Underwood and Balancing Act host Beth Troutman demonstrated how simply they could recreate a low-sugar version of a favorite family recipe using SUSTA Bowl on the show," said Michael McCarthy, president and CEO of NXT Nutritionals, "the viewers response was overwhelming."
"To meet this exciting consumer demand, we have made SUSTA Bowl available for pre-order now on our e-commerce site, www.sustastore.com, and we will start shipping these orders next month. We expect to introduce SUSTA Bowl into retail stores next Spring," McCarthy added.
SUSTA is targeted at individuals for whom sugar is either not a viable option, or is an undesirable option, such as diabetics, individuals on weight loss programs, and those proactively managing obesity. SUSTA is the only sweetening system in the retail marketplace that is all-natural, low glycemic, contains soluble fiber and probiotics, vitamins C, B6 and B12 and essential minerals and that helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, aids digestion as well as supports the immune system.
To pre-order the 1 lb. package of SUSTA Bowl, go to www.sustastore.com. Visit NXT Nutritionals website for the low-sugar recipes that were featured on "The Balancing Act."
