The Alternative

Why Alternative? Why not. My passion for crafting sweets is almost as old as me. But my passions are many and one of it is continuously researching for the best ingredients, the most unusual but not just plain weird, good and whole that is. I also love nature and our planet, even as a small child I was always very concerned about my surroundings. I am trying to bring together all of my passions and differences, to achieve in the end, Harmony. If there is such thing, I hope to find it. My confections are alternative because I use different ingredients to recreate classic and sometimes new, sweet creations. They might be "alternative, but they are as good if not better, then the traditional ones. Try to believe :-)

Our Confections

I have been asked several time about the ingredients in my vegan confections, so I figure I'll answer here for everyone to see. There is concern about corn and gluten. I never thought about corn been a problem, but apparently it is especially among children. I want to reassure everyone that I don't use any corn product. I have stopped using corn syrup or glucose syrup long time ago, after I discovered that organic agave nectar is just as efficient. I am not talking about the low glycemic index and all, because it seem there are controversial debate regard it. I am just saying that it is the best ingredient to do the job, no allergenic and organic. I am happy with it. I hope you will too :-)  

"Our confections DON'T contain Corn Syrup, glucose syrup, preservatives, artificial colors or flavorings. Only the best we can find; organic unrefined sugar, organic agave nectar, organic coconut milk, organic coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed (it's an Italian thing :-)), high quality dark chocolate (some of the chocolate we use might not have a fair trade label, but for some farmers obtaining the certification it is simply too expensive. I prefer south American chocolate, like Venezuelan, Colombian, Ecuadorian etc.) The Nougat and marshmallows do contain soy, at this moment there is no other alternative to substitute animal products, but I am still looking, trust me I am a stubborn one. It is after all a Labor of Love <3"
