Why it's a Jamtastic Addition to Recipes
Excellent Replacement for Refined Sugar
So many baking recipes nowadays include cups and cups of refined white sugar.
We know white sugar isn't good for us. According to Health Central, white sugar (sucrose) is the worst type of sugar because it has no nutritional value, increases blood sugar, and increases our weight. So why not replace it with a delicious fruity jam?
Worthy's uniquely flavoured jams are the perfect addition, made with cane sugar instead of white sugar which is less processed than white sugar and retains some nutrients from cane juice (SP Journal).
Natural Fruity Flavour
Additionly, cane sugar offers the benefit of being less refined compared to white sugar in jam which makes a great additiion to recipes as well as a nice fruit addition. Fruit within itself is a natural sweetener and can provide mouth-watering flavour profiles to your dishes.
