Jam or Jam?

Many people confuse the terms' jam 'and 'jam'. Contrary to what is thought, even if in common language the two words are considered synonymous, there is a substantial difference between jam and jam. The term jam, in fact, indicates a sweet preparation made only with citrus fruits, while jam means a product derived from all other types of fruit, or what is commonly called precisely jam. Obviously jam and jam are similar, both in preparation and in use, but in reality there are many differences between them, so many to be specified in a European directive. According to this, jam is a product made of sugar and citrus fruits, namely orange, tangerine, lemon, citron, bergamot or grapefruit, in which the percentage of fruit is at least 20%. Also according to the European directive, then translated into law, jam can be defined as a compound containing sugar and pulp of all other types of fruit in a percentage of not less than 35% in the case of normal jam, and 45% in the

case of extra jam.

Jams and jams: nutritional values and storage

Storage of jams and jams

Jams and jams are generally preserved thanks to the sterilized glass jars in which they are packaged and kept vacuum-sealed. Once opened, but already sealed, they maintain their properties thanks to the high concentration of sugar, which inhibits water activity and acidity, so that it is low enough to make it difficult for bacteria to grow. As a further precaution to avoid the formation of mold on the surface of our jams or jams, it is good not to contaminate the jars with spoons and knives that have residues of other foods, such as bread crumbs that may remain after cutting a slice to cover precisely with jam or jam. In addition, it is advisable to consume the product opened not too long, to avoid having to throw it away, since, if mold develops on the surface, the jam or jam is no longer edible and must be thrown away. In any case, given the goodness of these products, it is difficult for even a little jam or jam to be left


Nutritional values of jams and jams

Jams and jams, in general, are carbohydrate foods that have very variable nutritional values: they range from 130 kcal to 260 kcal per 100 grams. Not necessarily a jam or jam with fewer calories will be better: being a sweet product, it's better that it really is, so if you want to treat yourself to a treat, why not do it with something good and natural? A jam, or jam, with a sugar content of less than 35% risks not being sweet enough, and therefore of being unpleasant or not harmonious in taste. It is also best to pay close attention to so-called “light” jams or jams or jams without added sugar: they may contain aspartame and other unhealthy sweeteners with an intrusive taste. Finally, if you want to be sure that you have a product with excellent organoleptic properties, choose an EXTRA jam, that is, a jam that contains at least 45% of fruit pulp.

Quality honeys

How to choose quality honey

Honey is there for all tastes: from bitter or salty honey to dark or light honey, solid or liquid, creamy or grainy. Then there are nectar honeys and honeydew honeys, unifloral honeys and wildflower honeys. Of all these, it is important to know how to choose honey of the best variety and with the highest quality, and to do this you just need to follow a few simple rules.
The first rule to follow to consume good honey is to buy only Italian honey, and this is why a careful reading of the label is a fundamental action. Furthermore, the law requires that 100% of what ends up in a jar must be a product of the hive and no residues of chemical substances, such as antibiotics or the drugs with which bees are treated, are allowed. Many honey producers make use of BIO certification, which is a further confirmation of the quality of their product. Another tip: to be sure that you have excellent honey in front of you, you need to make sure that the color is as homogeneous as possible and free of stratifications or separations. In addition, the myth that the best honeys should be liquid must be dispelled: crystallization is an absolutely natural process and is a sign of excellent honey quality. In fact, there are only three types of honey in which crystallization does not occur, namely: acacia (or robina), chestnut and honeydew
