Why we choose unrefined sugar in our bakes?
When it comes to baking at Cedele, the type of sugar that we use can make a significant difference in the final product. While refined sugar may be the go-to option for many as it is readily available in supermarkets, unrefined sugar can be a healthier and tastier alternative, and Cedele has been using the latter for more than two decades in our cakes, bread and pastries.
Unrefined sugar is minimally processed, meaning it retains many of the natural vitamins and minerals found in sugar cane or beet. This makes it a much healthier choice than refined sugar, which has been stripped of all nutritional value during the refining process.
Here are some benefits of using unrefined sugar in our baking:
1. Richer flavour
Unrefined sugar has a more complex and deep flavour than refined sugar, adding a richer and more nuanced taste to all our baked goods.
2. Healthier option
Unrefined sugar is less processed and naturally contains minerals such as calcium, iron, and potassium, making it a healthier option.
3. Gentle on blood sugar levels
Unlike refined sugar, unrefined sugar releases glucose into the bloodstream gradually, preventing a sudden spike in blood sugar levels.
In conclusion, using unrefined sugar in your baking can offer a range of benefits, from a richer flavour and healthier option as an alternative to refined sugar. So, next time you’re baking, consider making the switch to unrefined sugar for a more wholesome and delicious treat.
