Rock Sugar Nutrition

Sugar is a must for some tea drinkers. However the health benefits and the sweetness masking the tea flavor can be concerning. There are so many types of sugars and sweeteners out there to choose from it can be hard to make the right choice.

A great choice for sweetening tea without altering its flavor is German Rock Sugar.

German rock sugar is a natural sweetener and is not processed like white sugar. In fact, rock sugar is made by heating water and sugar together. It then crystallizes because there is more sugar than water in the solution. This process makes it less sweet than regular sugar.

The crystallization creates a fuller taste therefore less sugar is needed for your tea. Less sugar is always a healthier choice. 

In contrast, rock sugar contains more calories than granulated sugar. Rock sugar holds 25 calories per teaspoon versus granulated sugar that holds about 16 calories per teaspoon. These calories come from the 5g of sugar, which are carbohydrates, in a teaspoon.

Lastly, as we all know, too much sugar in your diet is not good for you. It can bad for your teeth and can increase your risk of developing heart disease and other health-related problems. With these health risks in mind, it is best to keep your overall sugar intake within moderation, and when you do want that little bit of sweetness in your tea, use German Rock Sugar, it’s a healthier option.

Which type of sugar do you use in your daily tea?

    I love german rock sugar. It just takes so long to dissolve. I can’t even taste it until I reach the end of my tea and then its real sweet. Any suggestions?

    Try adding it to the leave container when you are brewing it then it will disolve into the tea as it’s brewing

    Teavana puts the rock sugar in the container you are brewing your tea. The sugar melts quite nicely, no overload of sugar at the bottom of the cup.
