I have high fructose corn syrup in my cupboard. It's at least 10 years old. I have never used it but for some reason it seemed like a staple that every kitchen needs. I probably bought it when I bought my first house. That would make it almost 20 years old.
The reason I've never used it is because it's unhealthy and it's processed in a horrible way. There are much better sweeteners available. I recently had the opportunity to try a brand new sweetener, Dolcedì (pronounced dohl-che-DEE), which is made from organic apples.
It's brand new! It just launched into Whole Foods stores this month. It's been in my pantry for a few weeks. It is recommended to use Dolcedi just like you would use table sugar or honey. You can also use it as a syrup, bake with it, or put it into drinks. I've used it to sweeten sumac pink lemonade, to make pancakes, mixed into my plain kefir, and to bind together a nut butter energy ball.
To me, it tastes and acts just like honey. Well, it tastes mostly like honey - clover honey. It's good. It's thick. It's sticky.
It is sweet without any icky aftertastes. Dolcedi is made 100% from the concentrated sugar extracted from apples. It's all-natural and has 25% less calories than sugar. It is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and STAR-KOSHER.
I really like it. I am happy using it in place of any of the other sweeteners in my pantry (especially the HFCS.)
* I received a complimentary bottle of Dolcedi for review purposes and no compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own.
