Unrefined cane sugar
A Source of: Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Potassium.
Unrefined cane sugar is made from the evaporated juice of the sugar cane plant and has many trace minerals and nutrients present. Refined (white) sugar, on the other hand, is devoid of all nutrients, delivering energy in the form of calories without any nutrients. Unrefined cane sugar contains roughly eleven calories per teaspoon and has the same vitamin and mineral consistency that is found in the juice from the sugarcane plant. These minerals include phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. It is logical that unrefined cane sugar contains minerals because minerals are present in the cane plant. Those minerals are stripped from the cane during processing into refined white sugar.
Today, it has become common knowledge that overconsumption of refined white sugar has devastating effects on health. It elevates blood sugar levels without providing any nutritional substance whatsoever. In addition, when sugar is refined and processed there are many harmful ingredients that are added to the sugar to aide in processing. Some of these include: Phosphoric Acid, Sulfur Dioxide, and Formic Acid. Unrefined raw sugar does not have these harmful chemicals.
It is very important to make sure that you don't mistake unrefined cane sugar with brown sugar. Brown sugar is sugar that has been refined and then molasses has been added to it. Brown sugar varies in color according to the amount of molasses that has been added to it.
Many people turn to alternative sweeteners because they believe that sugar is not good for them. However, there are numerous side effects and warning signs that accompany artificial sweeteners, even those that have been approved by the government. Some people think that if the government approves something then it is cannot cause harm. Please consider the fact that cigarettes are legal to know that this isn't true. Furthermore, artificial sweeteners are difficult to use in baking.
Unrefined cane sugar is the best choice for baking, taking into account flavor, color, shelf-life, functionality, and, yes, health attributes. Enjoy unrefined cane sugar in moderation with no guilt.   Back

Molasses
A Source of: Manganese, copper, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and selenium.
Molasses is made from the third boiling of cane sugar syrup and is the concentrated by-product left over after the sugar's sucrose has been crystallized. This molasses is a sweetener that in moderation is actually good for you! It is unlike refined white sugar, which is stripped of all nutrients. Molasses is a very good source of calcium, copper, iron, manganese, potassium and magnesium, which are all very important to the development and maintenance of our bodies.   Back

Semi-sweet chocolate - min 50% cocoa
A Source of: Serotonin, phenylethylamine and antioxidants.
Semi-sweet chocolate originates from the cacao bean, which is a seed from the Theobroma cacao tree. It has been shown to improve heart health, blood pressure, reduce LDL "bad" cholesterol, increase HDL "good" cholesterol and increase blood flow to the brain when eaten as part of a healthy lifestyle. It may also improve blood sugar and insulin sensitivity, reducing diabetes risk, and even help with depression and stress. The health benefits of chocolate come from flavonoids, a type of antioxidant found in the cacao bean, as well as in fruits, vegetables, tea, wine and coffee. The more cocoa a chocolate product contains, the richer its health-promoting content. Natural, non-alkalized dark chocolate and cocoa powder contain as much or more antioxidants as acai berry, blueberry, cranberry and pomegranate. Look for chocolate that doesn't contain partially hydrogenated oils to avoid harmful types of fat.   Back

Raisins
A Source of: Iron, potassium, fiber, boron and antioxidants.
Raisins are made by dehydrating grapes. They are full of energy boosting nutrients and are easily packed for life on the go! Through the drying process raisins maintain a unique phenol content. The phenols found in fruit have repeatedly been shown to have antioxidant activity and to help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells in the body. Raisins are also a great source of boron, which has been linked to providing protection against osteoporosis and is beneficial to bone health.   Back

Peanuts/Peanut butter
A Source of: Maganese, tryptophan, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin E, folate, fiber, copper, protein and antioxidants
Peanuts are not actually nuts; they are legumes, making them a part of the bean family. However, this complex plant food offers great nutritional benefits similar to other nuts! Peanuts are a very good source of monounsaturated fats, which decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, peanuts provide resveratrol, a phenolic antioxidant which is a plant chemical touted as an aid against cardiovascular disease, inflammation, cancer and aging. Peanuts are also great for reducing "bad" LDL cholesterol because they contain phytosterols and fiber.   Back

Coconut flakes
A Source of: Vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, manganese, selenium and potassium.
Coconuts are the fruit of the Cocos nucifera tree. The high saturated fat content of coconut and coconut oil has led to the perception that consuming them will increase cholesterol levels; however, their medium-chain saturated fatty acids are metabolized differently than long-chain saturated fatty acids found in meat and butter. They do not aid in the synthesis or transport of cholesterol. Instead, they are metabolized in the liver to be used as energy. Medium-chain saturated fatty acids, such as those in coconut and coconut oil, have been shown to have favorable effects on total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. Coconut and coconut oil also contain lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid. The body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which is a monoglyceride that has antibacterial, antiviral and antiprotozoal properties to enhance immune system function.   Back
