Have you ever paid attention to the foods’ label you buy? Isn’t it true that there’s always an added ingredient you don’t understand its reason to be there? Most of the times it’s about preservatives, others it’s about sweeteners that give a sweet touch and very often artificial flavors. So with regards to the jam, we mostly find them there and unfortunately very little fruit, which should be the main ingredient.What I have learnt since I have started to take interest in healthy nutrition, is that the less processed food is, the healthiest and the most nutritious.
The most cases are sugar and white flours, two basic ingredients in our diets and present in a lot of food we eat.
The best solution to reduce the intake, is to prepare our homemade recipes, where we know what ingredients we are going to use.
Like this red fruits jam, is very easy to prepare and healthy, because we are simply going to use fresh fruits and ecological whole sugar cane that is also fair trade (it’s good to help also producers if we can).
The moment you will taste it, you will feel the difference from industrial jams, where the fruit flavor is completely masked by the use of sugar.
Go ahead and prepare your healthy homemade jam! I’m sure that your body will thank you for it.
