ABOUT A+

A+ Plus Sugar contributes towards the health and well-being of an individual. A key ingredient in A+Plus Sugar is Vitamin A. Our Vitamin A itself is micro encapsulated making it stable and safe in our quality brown sugar.

Vitamin A helps Children to grow and develop properly. It helps protect the body against infections. It keeps the front of the eye healthy and helps the eye to see in dim light.

Everything in A+Plus Sugar’s production cycle is based in South Africa - from growing the raw sugar cane; to milling and producing our sweet brown sugar; to packaging - creating a truly South African Brand for South Africans.

 

VITAMIN A IS ESSENTIAL FOR:

  • Skin
  • Vision
  • Hormones
  • Skeleton
  • Immune system
  • Nervous system
  • Protein metabolism

South Africa has a serious public health problem of Vitamin A Deficiency – 33 out of 100 children under 6 years have poor Vitamin A status. About 65% of children aged 3-5 are most affected, with the highest percentage of those being children living in rural areas.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON’T RECEIVE ENOUGH VITAMIN A:

Evidence in South Africa – the reality:

  • Growth faltering due to reduced appetite and weight loss.
  • Increased number and severity of infections.
  • Visual disturbances.
  • Low birth weight and premature babies
  • Infants and children with recurrent infections
  • Infants and Children with Malnutrition
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women requirements for vitamin A increase during pregnancy and lactation.
