Why Choose Organic ingredients for Cupcakes when it’s already Vegan, Gluten-Free or KETO?
A lot of people discouraged me from using organic ingredients as having a label VEGAN CUPCAKE or KETO CUPCAKE should be enough to get the attention and charge a premium for it. I did notice that when someone says VEGAN or KETO then no more questions are asked and people pay extra for it.
Yes, I agree that it is more difficult and time-consuming to make GLUTEN-FREE, KETO and VEGAN Cupcakes in San Antonio, BUT if we don’t make them Organic then we are really not tackling the real health issue.
Let us first talk about the baking ingredients in general that needs to be used for Cupcakes:
Flour Provides the Recipe Foundation.
Fat Holds it All Together.
Sugar Is Sweet and Helps Tenderize.
Eggs Add Texture.
Liquids Add Leavening and Tenderness.
Salt Adds Flavor and Weight.
Leavening Agents Baking Soda and Baking Powder.
We need to add some ingredients for Vegan, KETO, and Gluten-Free cupcakes, but in general, this will give you a good idea of what ingredients are being used in your Cupcake.
Organic ingredients are food materials from animal or plant origin produced according to organic standards. In the U.S., these standards are established and regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The goal of these ingredients is to provide more natural, high-quality ingredients that are free from chemical residues. They are regarded as a healthy and environmentally-friendly option. Especially, for consumers trying to avoid what they perceive as unhealthy food ingredients or processing methods.
In order to claim an ingredient as organic, it must meet USDA organic standards. Also, the producer needs to go through the certification process. The USDA sets standards for livestock, crops, and multi-ingredient foods. The USDA is the government agency that certifies organic food.
The effect of KETO or Vegan diets can be better for your body as compared to using regular ingredients which of course are cheaper. For the same reason, we buy organic vegetables and fruits as they are healthier for our bodies.
Using Organic ingredients definitely increases our cost BUT we are giving a healthier option to you and your families.
So, next time when you look for KETO Cake, Vegan Cake Or Gluten-Free Cake, don’t forget to ask them if they are using Organic or sprayed ingredients.
So, now you know why we should use ORGANIC INGREDIENTS FOR OUR CUPCAKES!!
We use mostly organic ingredients in our cupcakes so that we can keep our cost-competitive or else one cupcake can be $8, not sure who would pay that one for one cupcake.
My goal is to ensure that we can deliver the healthiest option for YOU and yet keep it affordable for your family!
