I posted mocha frosting and filled chocolates using the glyconutrient, Trehalose last year and here comes another frosting recipe. SOOOOO, if you like cream cheese frosting you are going to LOVE this recipe!
It is OFF THE HOOK!! Seriously!!
Trehalose comes granulated and looks just like refined white sugar, however it is not and the way it reacts to heating and cooking is different then white sugar. (It doesn't brown and caramelize the same) So because of the $4 per pound cost I have only used it for frosting and confections by making it into powdered form. I have found that I use a bit more liquid to make a smooth frosting or confection to fill chocolate cups, then when I used refined white sugar.
Trehalose is 50% the sweetness of white refined sugar and has a clean taste that doesn't leave a heavy, sugary aftertaste. It is considered a glyconutrient, What does that mean?
I order Trehalose at www.Glycop.com. Trehalose is just ONE glyconutrient that is a beneficial nutrient that supports good health. There is one network marketing company who specialize in a line of glyconutrients. The following is taken from information I have gotten online.
