"Sugar" and "Flour"
0 - Sugar
DOES NOT MEAN
We use a fairly extensive (and expensive) list of sugar substitutes. Our recipes usually consist of a combination of 2 or more types of sugars to make sure we are maximizing the most flavor and utilizing each ingredients qualities.
Because the fact is... none of them act like the other, and none of them respond in the same way as your typical table sugar... which makes things very tricky!
Fun Fact !
None of our sugars boost glycemic index!
That means all diabetics should have no problem treating themselves to any of our baked goods and desserts.
Here is a list of the sugars we use:
Allulose (The Rare Sugar)
Gluten Free Flour Alternatives
Though there are many different flour alternatives you can choose from... these are the main 4 we try and stick with! Growing up, bread was such a comfort food for me. I still have a hard time staying away from it, but the more information I fed myself... the more I learned of the harm it was doing to my body and my family that I was feeding.
Just a few ( not so fun facts about the ingredient) :
Gluten is Latin for glue. Read that again! Gluten is linked to many psychiatric and neurological diseases, including mood disorders, emotional issues, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, migraines, epilepsy, neuropathy (nerve damage), and even autism. Gluten contains --> 0 <-- benefits for your body! Here are several more facts about the product if you would like to educate yourself.
Why do your products cost more than my local grocery store or bakery?
Great question! We know we are not the cheapest
product out there... But, what it all comes down to is
the cost of ingredients. Here is what I mean about just
a couple of our products:
(Theirs) Regular Sugar: $.48 a pound
(Ours) Erythritol Sugar : $5.50 a pound
(Theirs) All Purpose Flour: $.31 a pound
(Ours) Gluten Free Flours: $2.08 a pound
Though we would love to fit into everyone's
definition of affordable, the truth is,
these items just cost more.
If you fall into the category of gluten free/ sugar free on a regular basis, then you are already aware of
what those ingredients cost.
For all the curious, we invite you to try them
for yourself before deciding!
