NXT Nutritionals Holdings, Inc., the Holyoke, Massachusetts-based developer of SUSTA™ Natural Sweetener (the “Product”), a proprietary and healthy alternative to sugar and synthetic or chemical sweeteners, announced today that the Gristede’s Supermarkets, which have been feeding New Yorkers for over 100 years, have selected the Product’s 50 Packet Box item to be featured throughout Gristede’s 50 locations in Manhattan, Westchester and Long Island.

President and CEO of NXTH Michael McCarthy welcomed Gristede’s, which he called a “New York institution”, as yet another major supermarket chain in the Northeast to offer its customers the all-natural SUSTA alternative.

SUSTA™ Natural Sweetener is a special blend of non-caloric ingredients that can actually promote glycemic index balancing as it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. The Product is ideal for diabetics, weight loss programs, and obesity.

The Product represents the only all-natural, commercially available sweetening system which is low glycemic and contains soluble fiber, probiotics, essential minerals, vitamins B6, B12, and C – all to promote stabilized blood sugar levels while supporting the immune system and helping digestion.

Founded in 1888 by the two teenage brothers, Dietrich and Charles Gristede, Gristede’s Supermarkets began as a gas-lit and impeccably clean grocery store purchased with the ambitious young men’s life savings, and has since grown into the premier grocery shopping experience renowned for its selection of fresh dairy, meats, produce, gourmet/frozen/baked foods, and other specialty items.
