Was just adding new flavors to my stash and Custard Cake by Capella only shows 8 recipes and is not entered correctly (lower case C on Cake). Can’t find any other properly listed. But the big thing I found is that this flavor is not on the Capella site. According to BCF, where I got it, it has diacetyl also. It’s not listed in the flavor warning list. @Sprkslfly could you help with this?
Dumb question but does anyone know for sure this is a Capella flavor?
Well, two things:
I don’t recall seeing @Bull_City_Flavors ever make a listing mistake that “huge” before…
And second, it wouldn’t surprise me that they might have a flavor listed that isn’t on Cap’s site (could be a test flavor, or possibly an ‘oops’ listing that might not have been meant to be viewable yet, but it’s coming down the pipe very soon).
Following because I just ordered Custard cake, Frosting, Sticky Bun and Vanilla Milk Froth. SSA shortbread is my #1 so I skipped, and I’m not a pineapple lover.
I can’t wait to hear thoughts. Also regarding the listing on ELR, it’s all over the place.
Happy New Year
GREAT NEWS @Lynda_Marie. With all the peer pressure in this thread, I succumbed to it. I WILL admit to panicking after being UN-able to insert the sampler in my cart. Can’t wait to hear what you, and the other guys/gals think of them.
Thing to know - it’s based on Neotam (which is produced by aspartame) and this precisely makes me mad since no vendor is actually publishing this particular (but quite important) info and of course, no MSDS about this sweetener can be found on Capella site.
More info about Neotam is here if anyone interested
… and they hide that even on their product description
Neotame is sweet. 7,000 to 13,000 times sweeter than sugar.
It has no unwanted off-taste or aftertaste that many other sweeteners is burden with.
Neotame does not contribute energy (0 kcal), does not affect blood sugar levels (glycaemic index GI is 0) and does not cause caries.
Compared to aspartame, it is cheaper and has several food technology advantages, which we will return to.
How about the health impact? We will return to that too.
But let’s start from the beginning.
In the early 1990s, the company NutraSweet launched a comprehensive investment in finding optimal sweetener. It was a competition between two research groups. One was based in Illinois, USA, and was led by NutraSweet’s President, Robert Shapiro. The other was based in France and was led by the chemists Claude Nofre and Jean-Marie Tinti.
After seven years, the American group had found 500 new artificial sweeteners. At the same time, the group in France had found 2,000 new sweeteners, one of which was neotame.
