(Please note Silver Spoon brown sugars contain cane molasses). As we cannot guarantee availability in all retailers please call your local store to check stock before visiting. Silver Spoon use sugar beet primarily grown in East Anglia in the UK. As solid sugar has a shelf life in excess of 18 months (the true shelf life is actually indefinite when stored under appropriate conditions) and is approved by Food Labeling regulations (1984) to not bear a best before or sell date. Halve the amount of sugar you would normally use and get all the taste and texture of sugar, but only half the calories.
Other sugars are made from cane which is grown in hotter climates. Approximately 6 tonnes of sugar beet make up 1 tonne of sugar, that's about 4 - 6 beets in each pack of sugar! The FSA recommends you try halving the sugar you use, with Half Spoon you can halve the amount of sugar you use and still get the same sweetness.
