Utilizing seven different ways to make pumpkin bread, Culinary students experimented using healthier ingredients and recipes. With only 1 recipe containing the typical ingredients, six other recipes were used to make healthier options like gluten free, cholesterol free, egg free and low fat. After these were all created they then got to do some taste testing. YUM! Starting with the healthier options first, they then made their way through all seven to the typical ingredient version last. This experiment proved that to most when not tasting something packed with the sugars first and instead substituting with healthier ingredients they taste the same!
