Detox Desserts, which is headquartered in Carefree, Ariz., introduced new gluten free and whole grain flour “swaps” that bakers can use to make tasty, yet nutritional desserts.
The new flour substitutes for baking replace regular flour in any dessert recipe. The healthy gluten-free, low-carb swaps are made from a blend of coconut, almonds and whole psyllium husk.
“Whole psyllium is the key ingredient that puts the detox into Detox Desserts products,” says Dr. Alexis McNeil, the company’s founder. “It is a tasteless, pure soluble fiber that swells when it comes into contact with water. The bulking effect helps you feel full, tells your brain to stop eating and reduces cravings. It binds waste and toxins to help detoxify the body. Best of all, it contributes to excellent, tasty results.”
McNeil says studies show whole psyllium reduces total cholesterol, LDL (bad), triglycerides and lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease. It promotes healthy, normal movements by both bulking up the stool and absorbing excess fluid, which helps prevent constipation and diarrhea. Whole psyllium husk is a key ingredient in the flour swaps because it holds all the ingredients together while allowing for lifting in cakes and other baked goods.
“You can use these flour substitutes for baking all of your favorite desserts,” says, Dr. Alexis McNeil, the company’s founder. “The great thing is, your desserts will be beyond yummy and add maximum nutrition to your diet. I was determined to reinvent dessert and make it easy for everyone to remove refined flours, sugars and cholesterol from their favorite sweets without feeling restricted.”
The company’s full “swap” line must be used together as a complete system for optimal baking and health benefits. The flour substitutes are available for sale on its website, detoxdesserts.com.
