Norma tells me (via PM) that the link I provided in my last post requires registration. I am registered with bakingbusiness.com and usually access their articles without registering but this time I went to the bakingbusiness.com website directly and did a search there hoping to avoid the registration requirement. I'd copy the entire article but Steve has asked us not to do that sort of thing for copyright reasons. But here is a harmless snippet about apple juice:
“Fructose is approximately 20% sweeter than sucrose,” Ms. Swedberg said. “For example, single-strength apple juice contains approximately 5.9% fructose, 2.7% sucrose and 2.0% other sugars. Many consider fruit juice a natural alternative to processed sugar, and an increasing number of bakers are using juice concentrates as sweeteners to make a claim on the front panel. Depending upon the product, a fruit serving claim might even be possible.”
I find a lot of good articles at bakingbusiness.com that have had educational value to me as one interested in pizza, and think that it is worth registering with for those who are as interested in baking issues as I am.
