Alternative sweeteners - How healthy are dates, stevia and co?
Disaccharides are organic chemical compounds from the group of carbohydrates that have a sweet taste. Probably the best-known disaccharide is sucrose, a crystalline food known to most of us as household sugar and obtained mainly from sugar beet, sugar cane and sugar palm, which is why it is also called cane or beet sugar.
Balanced nutrition, superfoods, and the vegan lifestyle
A good feeling goes hand in hand with a healthy body. We regularly exercise to stay fit or try to move more, but more and more consumers feel that, above all, a healthy and balanced diet is essential for their physical well-being.
Natural fertilizers through upcycling
In our magazine, we have already introduced you to various residual materials that arise during food processing and offer a mostly undiscovered variety of applications. We started with our article on the possible uses of coffee grounds at the beginning of February, followed by walnut shells, eggshells, fish scraps and others. In this way, we want to continuously draw attention to the waste of valuable raw materials that can be passed on in the sense of a circular economy. For various industries, the use of residual materials represents a cheap and sustainable alternative to conventional, sometimes artificial materials, and also reduces the CO2 emissions and costs that would be incurred if they were disposed of.
