I have a bit of a sweet tooth, I must admit. So when I was invited to try Sans Sucre products I thought I had hit the jackpot! They are sugar-free or no sugar added, low fat, no cholesterol, lower in calories and lower in sodium. They come in four varieties of mixes and were super easy to mix up and pop in the oven.
Choose from blonde brownies, apple cinnamon coffee cake, chocolate fudge brownies and milk chocolate brownies. The first attempt at baking these I learned to use a smaller pan than suggested. They were very thin with the pan I used – but they tasted fine. I was surprised at how good something sugar free tasted and I really did not notice the Stevia taste instead of sugar. It was perhaps a little sweeter tasting than normal but still good. I had to keep in mind that it was not calorie free – just sugar free before I ate the whole thing up! I also shared with my family, as my dad is diabetic. I thought this would be a good alternative for him to try. He was pleased as well!
Foodservice industry specialists Bernard Food Industries, Inc. recently launched a new line of sugar-free and no sugar added baking mixes sweetened with all-natural Stevia. Sans Sucre, meaning “sugar free” in French, is available online and will be available at retail stores beginning in the fourth quarter. “Over the course of our 60+ year history, we have been dedicated to providing healthy dieting options. The Sans Sucre baking mix line is our first line of naturally sweetened products,” says Steven Bernard, chief executive officer of Bernard Food Industries. By using Stevia, an all-natural sweetener, Sans Sucre is able to produce baking mixes that have great taste and are naturally sweetened without additional sugar. According to the Mintel Sugar-Free Foods Survey, 24 percent of Americans watch their sugar intake. As this increasing number of people is staying away from processed foods that contain high amounts of sugar, preservatives and artificial ingredients, Sans Sucre is a great option for healthy eaters, diabetics and dieters alike. Along with being naturally sweetened, the Sans Sucre baking mixes are sugar-free or no sugar added, low fat, no cholesterol, lower in calories and lower in sodium. These nutritional facts appeal to the 90 percent of adults that consume low calorie or reduced fat foods on a regular basis, according to the Calorie Control Council. In addition to being healthy, Sans Sucre baking mixes are easy to prepare. Calling for minimal ingredients, they require only vegetable oil and water. Sans Sucre baking mixes can be created with ingredients from most everyday pantries, making them a quick, convenient and easy-to-bake treat. Note: Sans Sucre line of baking mixes is the first to use Stevia in place of sugar or artificial sweeteners. Stevia is an all-natural sugar substitute that is sweet in taste and free of calories, carbohydrates and fat, making it a healthy alternative. However, there is a distinct difference in taste between Stevia and regular sugar. “Like soda and diet soda both Stevia and sugar have different flavor profiles.” says Steven Bernard, chief executive officer of Bernard Food Industries.
