Sugar Free Ingredients

 

Honey, raisins and maple syrup are wholesome and natural sweeteners that can be used to make a sugarless pie. Two great tasting liquid sweetners to use for baking are mentioned below. 


 


1. Sorghum Syrup

Sorghum

It is a sweetener that is made seasonally when the main ingredient, sorghum is harvested. There are many varieties of this crop and sweet sorghum is chosen to make this natural and healthy sweetener. The juice is removed from the cane and reduced till it reaches a syrup like consistency. The end product has a copper golden color and a fruity flavor. Potassium, manganese and magnesium are the minerals that this sugar substitute is rich in. It can be safely eaten by people of age groups and is not associated with any safety risks.

 


2. Birch Syrup

Birch syrup

This is prepared from hardwood trees that grow in temperate climates. The sap of the tree is reduced at low temperatures till it gives a thick and dark colored syrup. This is recommended for weight watchers as the calories it contains are lower in comparision to sweeteners like honey. The calcium content is also high which is helpful for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles. Birch syrup can be successfully used for baking a guava pie which is dense and moist on the inside.
