Chief Baker of Akki’s Cupcakery & Tea, Akeila Tejwani, announced that the Akki’s Cupcakery & Tea has donated funds to five local kids charities in San Antonio and Cherry Hill Seminary. Donations were made to JDRF ($200), CAMP ($200), SJRC($500), The Ferrari Kid ($325), HeartGift($200), and Cherry Hill Seminary ($500) . Due to COVID-19, the need in our community has become increasingly stronger and the Akki’s Cupcakery decided to donate ALL of its profits to Kids Charities.

Akki’s Cupcakery was committed to giving 50% of its profits to kids charities but due to the current COVID-19 situation, Akeila felt that this was an important time to share with these non-profit kids organizations.

Why Choose Organic ingredients for Cupcakes when it’s already Vegan, Gluten-Free or KETO?

Image Source:https://www.bicycling.com/

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:

Difference between Keto and Paleo Bakery in San Antonio

I have been getting a lot of calls about Paleo and Keto products for our bakery in San Antonio.

So, I went out to do my research and here is what I found:

What is Keto Diet?

The primary goal of this type of diet is to put your body into a state of ketosis, which is when your body uses fat instead of carbohydrates as its primary energy source. When your body enters ketosis, fat travels to the liver and makes an acid called ketones, which enter your bloodstream and are converted into energy.

Unlike Paleo, Keto severely limits carbs and eliminates fruit and some starchy vegetables. For your body to enter ketosis, a good percentage of your calories (generally, somewhere between 60-80%, according to keto experts) needs to come from fats.

The extremely low level of carbs on the Keto Diet can cause what’s known as the keto flu, which causes headaches, nausea, muscle cramping, and fatigue. Like the Paleo Diet, these unpleasant side effects generally subside after a few weeks. Drinking plenty of water and getting a full night’s sleep should help.

This diet will help you lose more weight in a small amount of time.

What is Paleo Diet?

The Paleo Diet focuses on foods that are high in protein and rich with fiber. There’s a strong emphasis on meat, fruits, and vegetables — basically taking us back to the beginning of mankind.

Keto Cupcakes and Gluten Free Cupcakes in San Antonio – Are they both the same?

So, I heard a lot about Keto diets and I wrote about my understanding of KETO diet in this blog post

So, now the next question I got asked was ” Are your cupcakes GLUTEN-FREE?” I was not sure and guess what I decided to find out what is gluten-free exactly mean.

Here is what I found:

What is GLUTEN?

Gluten is found in many types of foods that we consume every day. It is found in wheat and other grains such as oats, rye, and barley. Gluten makes the grain GLUE-LIKE  when mixed with water. E.g., the gluten found in wheat bread flour helps the bread to rise and gives it a chewy taste, imagine bread having no chewy taste then you can finish it in one bite. Gluten is used very widely in various food additives and ingredients, which makes it difficult to avoid its use in baking and other items on your grocery list.

A gluten-free diet is generally used to treat people with celiac disease, or those who have gluten sensitivity and experience discomfort and symptoms after consuming gluten.

What is Vegan Diet?

 I have been looking into being a Vegan and here is what I found:

Vegans avoid all animal-derived foods – so as well as meat and fish, that means no eggs, dairy or honey. They also exclude animal byproducts like rennet used in cheese making, gelatine in desserts and certain E numbers including the red food dye cochineal (E120). Even certain vegetarian foods, such as some meat substitutes, are off the menu because they contain egg and sometimes dairy. vegan cake shop near me
