Therefore, FoodOboz offers several alternative products that will reduce the amount of added sugar by several times or even do without it.

Instead of using concentrated compotes and berry jams with sugar, you can use plain berry or fruit puree. This product is perfectly stored in the freezer – you just need to defrost it when needed. Puree can be consumed either in its pure form or diluted with water to make a compote. This puree is also useful because it is not affected by temperature. And the consistency does not depend on the amount of sugar.
