If you want to celebrate all the upcoming big events without worrying about all the sugar you’re eating, baker Jayne Jones has some perfect ideas for you. She hangs out with Buck Lanford to show how to make all the sweet treats you love without the sugar.
No Sugar Baker Jayne Jones gives tips on making yummy treats without sugar: The holiday season might be over, but there’s some big events coming up and they all involve food. From the Super Bowl to Valentine’s Day, how can you make some of your favorites minus all the unhealthy sugar? Jayne’s got the inside scoop. Added sugar has taken the spotlight as the ingredient to avoid in the modern diet. On average, Americans eat about 17 teaspoons of added sugar each day. 10% of the American population is either diabetic or pre-diabetic. Most sugars are hidden within processed foods, so people don’t even realize they’re eating it. All this sugar may be a key factor in several major illnesses, including heart disease and diabetes. Sugar goes by many different names, so it can be difficult to figure out how much of it a food actually contains. During processing, sugar is added to food to enhance flavor, texture, shelf life, or other properties. Added sugar is usually a mixture of simple sugars such as sucrose, glucose, or fructose. Other types, such as galactose, lactose, and maltose, are less common. Checkout the recipe below:
