Motivated by his own personal journey to lose weight and improve his overall wellness, Dr. Bosarge founded The Sola® Company in 2012 and enlisted his personal chef, Ryan Turner, a culinary expert in low-carbohydrate diets, to help create a healthy sugar replacement that was easy to cook with and didn’t have the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
After two years of testing and development, Chef Ryan hit upon a blend of ingredients that, when combined, taste, bake, caramelize, and measure like sugar. Named Sola®, the sugar substitute became available to consumers in November 2016.
Early clinical studies of Sola® have shown that it suppresses insulin levels (and, hence, the likelihood of diabetes) by suppressing the amount of fructose and glucose in the bloodstream and suppressing glycemic levels. As a result, Dr. Bosarge expects Sola® to play a major role in helping to reduce the over-consumption of sugar and reverse the growing rate of obesity and diabetes.
Sola® is available on Amazon.com and HEB stores in Texas. Additional retailers will have Sola in 2018.
