Fruit Sweet is a food! Its blend of pear and pineapple juice concentrates contain fruit sugars, mostly fructose. Rich, with a warm, slightly caramel flavor, it is the natural sweetener of choice by the diabetic world. The richness helps reduce fat in a recipe.
Concentrated fruit juices are natural foods that taste sweeter than honey or any syrup or sugar, so less is needed in any recipe. With 280 calories per 100 grams, they beat sugar's 385 calories for the same amount. Besides the nutrition advantage, the concentrates are humectants, keeping baked goods fresher for a longer period of time.
- To convert a sugared recipe to fruit concentrate, substitute 2/3 cup Fruit Sweet per cup of sugar. Reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/3 of the Fruit Sweet used. Some people prefer 1/2 cup Fruit Sweet per cup of sugar. Less Calories!
