O brown sugar and raw sugars

To understand brown sugar, you must understand sugar production. The majority of sugar used in America is produced from sugar cane. The cane is harvested and crushed. The resulting juice is collected an d th This evaporates the juice's water, concentrating its sugar. Lime is added to the mixture to clarify the liquid. The mix is heated and reduced down even further. Seed crystals are added and the mix is placed into a centrifuge and spun. The liquid contains impurities, items of various densities. By spinning it in a centrifuge (much like a gigantic salad spinner), the liquid and crystals are separated. Molasses and raw sugars are the result. (See Molasses, page 170.) The raw sugar must be refined further to be sold as granulated sugar. Further refining whitens the sugar and strips it of its original flavor. Raw sugars, on the other hand, have nuances of flavor that are a result o f th e reduction process. These flavors can range from butterscotch, to toasted nuts, to caramel, to name...

Molasses And Brown Sugar

Molasses contains large amounts of sucrose,plus other sugars, acids, and impurities. Brown sugar is mostly sucrose, but it also contains varying amounts of molasses and other impurities.The darker grades contain more molasses. Because molasses and brown sugar contain acids, they can be used with baking soda to provide leavening (see p. 904).

Simple Sugars

They are small molecules found in many foods and in many forms. Some simple sugars occur naturally in foods. For example, fructose is the sugar that naturally gives some fruits their sweet flavor. Table sugar, the sugar that we spoon onto our cereal and add to the cookies we bake, also called sucrose, is the most familiar simple sugar. A ring-shaped molecule of sucrose actually consists of a molecule of fructose chemically linked to a molecule of another simple sugar called glucose. Sugars such as fructose and glucose are known as monosaccharides, because of their single (mono) ring structure, whereas two-ringed sugars such as sucrose are known as disaccharides. Another disaccharide, lactose, the sugar that gives milk its slightly sweet taste, consists of glucose linked to yet another simple sugar called galactose. The inability to digest lactose to its constituent sugars is the cause of lactose intolerance, a condition common to adults of Asian,...

Sugar Substitutes

For the same reason that people have recently sought substitutes for fat, noncaloric sugar substitutes became popular in the 1960s as people began to try to control their weight. Sugar substitutes are of two basic types intense sweeteners and sugar alcohols. A fourth intense sweetener, sucralose (Splenda), was approved by the FDA in 1998 for sale and use in commercial food products. Sucralose is made by chemically modifying sucrose (table sugar) to a non-nutritive, non-caloric powder that is about 600 times sweeter than sugar. Before approving sucralose, the FDA reviewed more than 110 research studies conducted in both human and animal subjects. It concluded that the sweetener is safe for consumption by adults, children, and pregnant and breastfeeding women in amounts equivalent to the consumption of about 48 pounds of sugar annually (an Acceptable Daily Intake of 5 milligrams per kilogram of body weight). People with diabetes may also safely consume the sweetener, because it is not...

Sucrose See Sugar

Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate Weighting agent for beverages made from sugar. It increases the specific gravity of flavoring oils used in Sucrose Fatty Acid Esters Emulsifiers, texturizers that are the mono-, di-, and triesters of sucrose with fatty acids and are derived from sucrose and edible tallow, or hydrogenated edible tallow or edible vegetable oils. Ethyl acetate or methyl ethyl ketone or dimethyl sulfoxide and isobutyl alcohol (2-methyl-l-propanol) may be used in the preparation of sucrose fatty acid esters. Sucrose fatty acid esters may be used as follows as emulsifiers in baked goods and baking mixes, in dairy product analogs, in frozen dairy desserts and mixes, and in whipped milk products as texturizers in biscuit mixes as components of protective coatings applied to fresh apples, avocados, bananas, banana plantains, limes, melons (honeydew and cantaloupe), papaya, peaches, pears, pineapples, and plums to retard ripening and spoiling.

Maple syrup is the most common sweetener called for in this cookbook because it is natural and unrefined, contains some nutrients (unlike white sugar), is very sweet (which is important for making good, satisfying desserts), its flavor is very pleasant, it adds moisture, and it goes well with many desserts. Agave nectar (light agave nectar syrup) is also a very good liquid sweetener that can be used in addition to maple syrup, or in place of it. It has many of the same characteristics of maple syrup (natural, unrefined, very sweet), except that its flavor is very subtle, similar to honey. Powdered Sucanat (see the Glossary of Ingredients ) is a good choice if you are looking for a non-liquid sweetener (it is very sweet like maple syrup these two can be used interchangeably, but with modification to the amount of liquids see below in Sweetener Substitutions ). The Maple Cake version is richer, and I have found that people who are used to traditional desserts (with butter, cream,...

The Bottom Line Optimizing Health

Nutrition experts agree that when you lower the total fat, saturated fat, and added sugar in your diet and increase the vitamins, minerals, and fiber by eating more fruits, vegetables, and grains, you can improve your quality of life and help prevent many of the diseases that are the leading causes of death. Now that you know the goals and guidelines for healthful eating, we will provide you with the nutrition and food selection knowledge you need to put those guidelines into practice.

Complex Carbohydrates

Starch is the form of carbohydrate that is found in grains, some fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. It provides energy for newly sprouting plants. Fiber is the tougher material that forms the coat of a seed and other structural components of the plant (see illustration on page 20). Starches are digested by our bodies into their constituent glucose molecules and used for energy, whereas fiber is not. Starch, like simple sugars, provides 4 calories per gram, whereas fiber (sometimes called nonnutritive fiber) provides no calories. Like simple sugars, the role of starches in our diets is mainly to provide energy. Brown sugar

Beef N Brew Vegetable Soup

I add about 1 4 cup barbecue sauce to the top, before putting the cover on. I use whatever variety of sauce that I have on hand.

Milk Fudge Dulce de Leche

Usually a sweet spread made from milk boiled with sugar, or from lengthy simmering of condensed milk. It is popular throughout Latin America, particularly in the southern cone of South America, and is used in Portugal, Spain, and France. Dulce de leche has a caramel-like flavor, though it is not produced by car-amelization but by the Maillard reaction, a chemical reaction between an amino acid and a reducing sugar in the presence of heat.

Eating the Atkins Way Must Have Special Advantages

The controlled carbohydrate nutritional approach is not one of deprivation. Sheer hunger is the main reason for the failure of most weight loss efforts. A lifetime eating plan needs to be palatable, pleasant and filling. You will have to abandon sugar and other refined carbohydrates such as white flour. But most people find that once they shake off the sugar addiction, they feel no strong desire to go back to it. For them, a nutritional approach that allows them to eat a vast variety of meat and fish and salads and vegetables prepared in the most appetizing manner-i.e., with butter and cream and spices and herbs-is anything but austere. Eating Atkins-style is a food lover's dream come true-luxurious, healthy and varied.

The Scope of this Book

Sorcinelli concentrates on food consumption and actual calorie intake, and confronts this with the rhetoric 'from above'. A similar approach is offered by Martin Bruegel in his chapter on sugar consumption in nineteenth-century France. He shows that the shift of sugar from a luxury to a commonly accepted commodity before the First World War owed a great deal to the campaign by the sugar lobby and the state against the 'popular prejudice' that regarded sugar as pointless. Bruegel concludes that the working-class resistance to sugar consumption imposed by bourgeois norms was an expression of working-class identity, which illustrates a negative connotation of a food item with identity formation. Of course, identification by means of food and drink also operates for groups other than social classes. An example is provided by Lynn Martin, who explores the bond between old age and alcohol drinking in England, France and Italy from circa 1300 to 1700. He surveys contemporaries' perceptions...

L experience sweet and bitter

Taste these chocolates moving from the lesser to greater percentages of cocoa liquor. As you taste the dark chocolates you will find that the taste takes longer to bloom in your mouth. Unlike the white or milk chocolate, you will have to chew the chocolate longer before any kind of taste is released. This is because dark chocolates have less sugar than milk or white chocolates. The less sugar there is in a product, the longer it takes for the taste to be perceived. Sugar gives the taster immediate impact, introducing the essence of the product's flavor in a loud and clear voice. Thus, a bite into a white chocolate, with its high sugar content, results in an immediate perception of flavor. With dark chocolates, especially those with a high percentage of cocoa powder (which means, consequently, that the chocolate has less sugar), you will have to chew the chocolate longer before its true flavor is released. A chocolate of 50 or 73 takes l onger to introduce...

Beginners Luck Brown

28 oz dark brown sugar Procedure Hops these are two of the six or so types available here in the UK I'm afraid I don't know what the US equivalents would be because I've been brewing only since my transplantation from the States in early '92. If anyone knows a reasonable set of hops equivalencies, I'm all ears. Northern Brewer is a very sharp hop that is a prime-requisite for British dark beers and stouts (and some pale ales) Goldings is a much rounder hop that is a prominent component of southern-English bitters. US brewers use yer best guesses, I guess. Procedure I treat my water with 0.25 tsp salt per gallon to adjust pH the water here (Bristol, in the SW) is fairly soft by UK standards but contains some dissolved CaCO3. I have had no difficulties whatever using tap water. I dissolve the malt extract and then boil the adjunct grains + hops in it for about an hour. I then strain a couple of kettlesful (kettlefuls ) of hot water into the primary through the spent grains and hops to...

World Famous Beef Jerky Soy sauce

Worcestershire sauce Brown sugar Crushed garlic Start with several pounds of very lean beef roast. You should choose a roast with visible grain, if possible, and little or no fat. It needn't be very high quality, and in fact, tougher cuts seem to actually work better. Mix a marinade with some or all of the following Mixing the sauce is largely a matter of taste. The result should be close to 3 parts soy sauce, 1 part Worcestershire, 1 part brown sugar and the rest as desired. It should be a very strong salty, spicy and slightly sweet solution. The rest of the ingredients depend on your taste, and the list is by no means exhaustive. Adding red wine will decrease the saltiness and or dilute it if you get it too spicy without affecting the flavor greatly. You should not use more than about 30 to 40 red wine, however, since the saltiness is necessary to preserve the meat. Don't get too hung up on the recipe, it is good just about any way you fix it. With a very sharp knife, slice the...

Fiber A Form of Carbohydrate

In fact, fiber actually slows the entry of glucose into the bloodstream. This in turn reduces the blood-sugar spikes that cause insulin production and encourage the body to produce and store body fat.' And by slowing down food's transit time in the digestive tract, fiber helps you feel full longer, resulting in fewer food cravings. How can you get the benefits of fiber without the carbs contained in these foods The answer is supplementation. I recommend that you take one tablespoon of psyllium husks daily. Be sure to select a sugar-free product. You can also take one tablespoon of coarse wheat bran or flaxseed meal. Although it's derived from grain, coarse bran is pure fiber and therefore it too contributes zero to your carb count. Psyllium husks should be mixed with water. You can sprinkle bran over your vegetables or blend flaxseed meal into a shake.

How to Fashion a Food Plan from the Acceptable Foods List

You are more likely to enjoy gourmet meals doing Atkins than on the low-fat diets that still wearily make the rounds. But, for the moment, I merely want to introduce you to the notion that gourmet dining will be yours once you master all the possibilities offered by a nutritional plan that allows an intelligent and reasonable use of high-fat ingredients, including butter. Here and now, your attention should be totally focused on whether you feel you are in control of your eating and whether you feel healthy. Remember, during Induction my intention is to make you realize it is possible to be liberated from constant food cravings aggravated by unstable blood sugar. When you experience this liberation-and most significantly overweight people do-try to savor it. Notice how different it makes you feel. And remember it's something you can enjoy only on a controlled carbohydrate eating plan.
