We Are Making Some Changes

Julia and Fiona

Julia and Fiona

Hello Everyone,

The Sugar Breakup is now officially three years old and it’s time for the team to reflect on change.

We have decided to say farewell to our online shop. That means we will no longer be supplying our rice malt syrup or dextrose powder.

Our online shop will officially close on Saturday September 24, 2016. So there’s still plenty of time to stock up on dextrose powder. Unfortunately we have completely sold out of the organic rice malt syrup.

If anyone would like a bulk supply of the dextrose please contact us at: and we can arrange suitable transport costs.

We will still be selling our cookbooks, ‘Get your bake on’ and ‘Classic Collections: Family Favourites’ in our online store until September 24, 2016. After that date the PDF versions will be available for sale by contacting:

Our gorgeous website will still be up and running and will be upgraded our recipe page and adding lots of delicious new ideas and recipes.

We loved selling our products and learnt many things along the way. We would like to say a very big thank you to Health Magic, who were the first distributors to believe in us and give us a start.

Wishing you all happy baking.
