Sweetness is my weakness. Well, so are saturated fats and deep-fried foods but a FGV has to keep a special spot in their heart for sugary snacks. My body craves vegan delights such as chocolate and cupcakes…. and who am I to deny it?
Most of the sweet stuff I consume is made with processed cane sugar but I have recently come to adore an alternative to this regular sweetener. Vegans and vegan-curious, I would like to introduce you to Sweet Freedom.
It was last year at the Allergy & Gluten Free Show in London where I stumbled upon a stall promoting a honey alternative made from fruit. I was delighted to discover Sweet Freedom as I am always on the lookout for interesting ways to make my food sweeter.
I have used Sweet Freedom to glaze pastries, on toast as a honey replacement and even to sweeten my porridge. It is an incredibly diverse, cruelty-free alternative that I am becoming increasingly dependent on. Sweet Freedom advertises itself as being 25% lower in calories than sugar, completely natural, GM free, gluten free and produced in a nut free factory. The syrupy sweetener comes in a light and dark variety while the bottles carry the Vegan Society trademark.
I have included a photo comparing the old bottle I picked up last year with a new design recently taking its place on supermarket shelves. Look out for both and enjoy this gorgeous sweetener any which way you like.
