The Secret To Delicious No-Sugar-Added Baking: Tasty, Tasty Sugar



What’s the secret to totally delicious healthy, no-sugar-added baking? Fat and sugar, of course! This re-enactment of a classic “Seinfeld” episode is brought to you by Butterfly Bakery of New Jersey, where three out of the company’s 45 varieties of baked goods were shown to contain a lot more saturated fat and sugar than the label stated. By “a lot,” we mean twice the saturated fat listed on the label, and three times the sugar.

The bakery first received a warning letter in May 2011, and the company said in a statement that they’ve been working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration since then to comply with regulations. Unfortunately, lab tests showed that “sugar free” items weren’t. The bakery has agreed to shut down until they can straighten this out with the FDA.

“We are confident that our product claims are true,” Butterfly Bakery said in a statement on their Facebook page.
