I have some exciting news to share with you all. A while ago a company called Madhava contacted me and they have developed a new sweetener that is fructose free! It even says so right on the bottle:
Just look at those magic words! It’s made from cassava and it’s 35% glucose, 35% maltose, and the rest is complex carbohydrates. It’s also organic and non-GMO, which I love! I’ve tested it extensively to make sure it doesn’t make me sick and I’m certain that it does not. (Although I found something else that does. Blerg.)
They sent me a couple of bottles to try (I’m not getting paid for this, though, don’t worry!) so I could make a few recipes. This sugar behaves like a corn syrup, so didn’t want to just bake a normal dessert recipe and replace table sugar with this. I wanted to make something we can’t make with dextrose and certainly can’t have as a store-bought treat.
