This quote from the folks at Wholesome Sweeteners sums up how they feel and how we feel...
"Sometimes it seems that we’re a long way from real food. As a company, we appreciate consumers who take the time to read labels. Product labels tell us where the food comes from, who made it, what is in it and how it is produced."
This philosophy hits especially close to home when one is dealing with raw ingredients, like corn and sugar cane. Commodities like these are governed by price - lower is better - and so when we found a company who pays a fair price for a great product, we wanted to be a part of what they're doing.
The campaign against high-fructose corn syrup has claimed many victims, and unfortunately, real corn syrup is one of them! Corn syrup is, in general, a natural product, not cooked up in a lab like HFCS. This organic syrup is made from non-GMO corn grown in the US. It's vital to candy-making - marshmallows, brittles and frostings just aren't the same without it!
