Dessert Recipes Directory
When it comes to dessert, people generally think of it as full of sugar and really unhealthy. It is very true, if you
were to buy the factory-packed desserts off the shelf. Just imagine how much preservative
a custard tart contains if it can be kept for up to a few months - sometimes even longer!
Plus, sugar also in a way acts as a natural preservative; which may lead to even more sugar
packed in these products.
Some people opt for sugar replacement, which they are not sure of the ingredients. But doing
extreme alteration to your diet and cutting off a natural food source is simply not the answer,
let alone taking something else which has probably been chemically processed to taste like sugar.
The key is moderation. Here on KnowingFood.com, we do not believe in cutting any form of
natural food out of our lives. Unless of course in this case, if you are diabetic.
Making your own dessert means you can control the amount of sugar used. In most cases, sugar
is only used for providing sweetness rather than some main ingredients that would affect the
texture or cooking result. So, gradually reducing sugar to just enough for your taste, would help
keep a balance in your blood sugar level.
If you have been fed on extremely sweet diet for a long time, your tastebuds will become less
and less sensitive to sweetness. As a result, you will need even sweeter food to satisfy your
sense for sweet taste. Do a little experiment by eating something very sweet, for example
a marzipan covered cake; then followed by a sweet drink immediately. See if you can taste the
sweetness in the latter.
