Since we are all waiting impatiently for huckleberry season, I thought I’d share some of my favorite huckleberry products with you ….. Huckleberry Spread.
Gem Berry has created a NO SUGAR ADDED huckleberry spread for those who desire flavor but cannot tolerate sugar. The key to their Huckleberry Spread is the sweetener, Lycasin*, which is a colorless, odorless, clear syrup with organic and mineral purity. Lycasin has a pleasant, sweet taste with no after taste. Diabetics may find this NO SUGAR ADDED spread useful in their diets.
During the years I sold this product to retail stores, many store buyers/managers told me that the Gem Berry Huckleberry Spread was one of their most popular products. They told me that the concentration of huckleberries (without the added white sugar) in the spread was much higher and thicker, making this more of a preserve rather than a jam or spread.
*Note: Lycasin is the trade name for Maltisorb (Crystalline Maltitol) and is a corn derivative.
