Given the need for “healthier eating”, Gom Food Industries has improved the recipes for Sishado sauces in the course of 2017. Less sugar and salt are now used in the preparation of Sishado sauces.
In 2018 we had our products re- tested at the Caribbean Industrial Research Institute (Cariri) in Trinidad. New Nutrition facts have emerged from these tests. Most of Sishado sauces now contain less sugar, salt, calories and carbohydrates.
By 2018, the focus on “health” has also shown the need to emphasize the Allergens present in products. This must be indicated by mentioning Allergens with Capital letters and in Bold print on the label.
For the above reasons, the Sishado labels have been adjusted. The new labels will contain the new Nutrition facts. The Allergens (Soya and Peanuts) will also be listed with Capital Letters and in Bold. The new labels will be used from production date March 2019.
