Lotao: Overview of sugar alternatives for baking

Berlin, November 19, 2018.

Whether heavenly cinnamon Christmas cookies or spicy stollen - the pre-Christmas bakery is a crucial part of the cozy season. Lotao now offers a range of alternatives to conventional industrial sugar to ensure the appropriate sweetness of the treats.
The “Lotao Kiss” series consists of valuable organic sugars that are far more tolerable than household sugar. In addition, each of the natural sweeteners has a special aroma that makes them an absolute taste experience. They are also much more durable than common sugar alternatives such as syrup.
Stefan Fak, founder and managing director of Lotao GmbH, says about the use of “Lotao Kiss” products as a sugar alternative: “In addition to our tried and tested coconut blossom sugar variants, we have now expanded our portfolio to include agave , rice and cane sugar specialties , which are due to their special properties Manufacturing and specific properties are incomparable.”
The special thing about the range is the quality of the sprinkles, because with liquid sweeteners there is often a problem with the dosage - especially with traditional family recipes, the consistency of the cookie dough can change and the result does not meet the expectations of the hard-working Christmas bakers. The annoying issue of clogged syrup bottles is also a thing of the past with the “Lotao Kiss” sugar variations.

Sweeten with agave, rice, sugar cane or organic coconut blossom

Maya Kiss: Made from one of the most fascinating plants in the world, this sugar with the best properties comes from agave. When making “Maya Kiss”, organic agave syrup is gently evaporated until only the fine, crystalline agave sugar remains. The result is a seasoning with a unique shelf life and pleasant texture. “Maya Kiss” is naturally free of gluten and lactose and is ideal for pastries thanks to its consistently mild taste. Because agave sugar is so fine, it dissolves quickly and is therefore the perfect alternative to table sugar for any intensity of sweetness.

Jaggery Kiss: The sustainable cane sugar for Lotao is produced according to old traditions in small businesses in northern India. The Ayurvedic sugar specialty has been produced in the same way for centuries. During the production process, an Ayurvedic master ensures that Ayurvedic principles are adhered to, because the end product is considered particularly valuable. It is sweet and molasses, round and fruity in taste and only delicately sweet, which is why it is particularly suitable for speculaas varieties and cakes.

Rice Kiss: For Lotao “Rice Kiss”, organic rice syrup is gently dried until a mild crystalline sweetness is created. The organic rice sweetener is naturally free of gluten, fructose and milk sugar (lactose), which makes it particularly well tolerated. The finely crystalline white powder has a slight butter and honey note and is therefore particularly good in butter and walnut or hazelnut pastries.

All four variants are lower in calories than conventional table sugar and are therefore ideal for nutritionally conscious baking. The natural production sets the Lotao Kiss series apart from substitute sweeteners such as stevia or maple syrup.
The “Sweet Dream Set” consisting of one pack of each of the listed specialties from the “Lotao Kiss” series is currently available via lotao.com: In addition to the sweeteners, the set contains a pack of each breakfast sensation from the “Lotao Twist” series:
  • Cocoa-Coconut Perfectioner (topping for muesli and porridge)
  • Red Berry Perfectioner (spice mix for desserts and pastries)
  • Kaya Chocolate Cream
If desired, the “Sweet Dream Sets” can be made available for competitions.
