RealCake with Real Natural Sweetner – Organic Honey
At RealCake we believe that making a healthy cake is all about substitutions of certain ingredients like sugar, butter, oil and flour, as well as using less frosting or glaze.
Therefore we only use USDA Certified Organic Honey instead of chemically processed sugar. You must be wondering what is the difference between the two, to understand it better let me explain about it in detail. Our body use food as a fuel to run itself by breaking down food into glucose. The more complex a food the more work it takes to break it down.
Sugar is made of 50 percent glucose and 50 percent fructose and therefore it is broken down very easily, leading to a surge of blood glucose. What your body doesn’t use right away gets stored as fat.
Honey is only about 30 percent glucose and less than 40 percent fructose. And there are also about 20 other types of sugary substances in the mix making it much more complex, and dextrin, a type of starchy fiber. What it means is much more work for body burn this fuel in to glucose. Therefore, one end up accumulating fewer calories from it. The best part is that honey contains trace minerals such as zinc, selenium & vitamins and as it is doesn’t break down in nature, it doesn’t contain preservatives or other additives.
