Many sweeteners on the market are chemically processed or nutritionally void, while others have a bitter aftertaste or spike our blood sugar. The Rigoni family from the Altopiano di Asiago in Northern Italy (90 miles north of Venice) has launched a new, all-natural liquid sweetener called Dolcedì (pronounced dohl-che-DEE) that’s made from 100% organic apples and is a low-glycemic alternative to sugar and other sweeteners. With 25% fewer calories than table sugar, Rigoni di Asiago Dolcedì is made from the concentrated and filtered sugar extracted from organic apples. It is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and STAR-KOSHER. Dolcedì can be used any way you would use traditional table sugar or honey and in the same proportions; one teaspoon of sugar equals one teaspoon of Dolcedì. Its neutral flavor enhances the taste of food and drinks without altering them. Dolcedì is also perfectly soluble in both cold and hot drinks and can be enjoyed with pancakes, on yogurt, in fruit salad, and in baking. “Though our business is driven by tradition and our family’s heritage, we are also inspired by innovation and current healthy food trends,” says Rigoni di Asiago C.E.O. and President Andrea Rigoni. “Dolcedì is a wonderful marriage of old and new. We source our apples with the same organic farming practices that we have practiced for years but are processing the bounty in a new and exciting way to bring the world a great-tasting, better-for-you sweetener.” Rigoni di Asiago Dolcedì is available in stores nationwide in a 350 g (12.34 ounce) squeezable bottle with a dripless cap.
