The Brown Cookie Co Ingredients
Now that you have gotten to know a little bit about us, let's get into some of the ingredients. You know there is a story behind them all, right?
Yup, "they"' say they're actually good for you too:0)
Spice & All That's Nice
The spice we never think twice about not using. It is known to be anti much, including antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and contains antioxidants with anti-inflammatory effects...not to mention helps with the tummy, blood sugar, memory and tastes warm and yummy.
This one here is near and dear, it's an astringent, powerful, bright and earthy. It cleanses the palate and soothes the tummy too. It also has antibacterial qualities and is known to give a boost to the immune system. It's a great balancer when it comes to sugar too!
The rhizome of this plant is also full of anti-inflammatory super powers, can help manage headaches, arthritis and may enhance attentiveness. Other bonuses? It helps tummies, "burns" oh so good in our delicious goodies, is known to lower sugar and soothe muscles.
Sugar vs. Suga
By now you may have heard of numerous stories and questions regarding the differences between the sugars. Which has a higher sugar content? Which offers more benefits? Is sugar even good for us? Well, here it is from our kitchen to yours...the truth. Sugar is good but too much isn't good for anyone.
When it comes to sugar, among many other foods, the more you process a thing, the less full of goodness in the thing. Well, white sugar is processed then processed some more, thus taking out a good bit of the benefits usually found in our natural sugar cane. The raw cane turbinado we use is processed, yes, but less, thus we get a bit more nutrients, including the molasses (full of iron, calcium, magnesium, etc.), and the more earth taste makes the goodies less sweet. Other alternatives you see in some of our goods include organic coconut sugar, organic maple syrup, organic honey, organic raw blue agave syrup and blackstrap molasses. They all have their benefits, but they're still sweets.
Sweets are the treat of nature, so imbibe and eat as you so choose; however, please be sure to do so in moderation and stick to the big dogs for the largest percent of your food and beverage intake. Who are these dogs and who let them out, you ask? Ha, love music! Water, veggies, fruits, grains and proteins. God's world has a great number of various kinds! Either way you mix it, the sweeteners we choose to use 97.9% of the time, has to be brown; lets us know they're closer to the ground (less processed+ more bitter= much better)
and we use less too. Smooches! Or should we say, "Sugas"?!
