In an effort to live healthier lives, many people think they have to compromise. By that we mean, they think they have to choose between bland, tasteless food that is high in nutrients or great tasting food that is high in fat with no nutritional value. Well compromise no more. We want to introduce you to a great tasting product that is all natural, high in nutrients, and great in taste. It’s called Townsend’s Sorghum.
Townsend’s Sorghum is the healthful alternative to sugar. In fact, it contains many of the daily recommended requirements of several vitamins and minerals you need everyday including potassium, phosphorous, and iron. You see Townsend’s Sorghum is an all natural sweetener because it contains no chemical additives. Sorghum is made from a sweet sorghum plant. The sorghum cane looks like a corn stalk with no ears of corn growing on it.
At Townsend’s Sorghum, we grow our own sorghum cane on our fifth generation family farm. When we harvest the sorghum cane, it is put into a press and all the natural juice is squeezed out of the plant. The sorghum juice is then heated to remove all the impurities. As the sorghum juice boils, the impurities rise to the top where they are skimmed off and removed. The heating process also causes the sorghum juice to thicken. Good sorghum has a thickness similar to that of honey, although sorghum tends to have a sweeter taste.
In addition to having lots of vitamins and nutrients, Townsend’s Sorghum is versatile. Most people think of sorghum simply as a breakfast food that is eaten on biscuits or bread, just like jams and jellies, but that is only the beginning. You can use Townsend’s Sorghum like sugar in your coffee or hot tea. You can use Townsend’s Sorghum in place of sugar for cakes, pies and cookies. Townsend’s Sorghum can be used in all sorts of vegetable dishes from slaws and salads, to green beans and corn. It can also be used on meats and in stews or chilies. Once you try Townsend’s Sorghum you’ll find uses for it in nearly everything you cook
