Fruit Cake

Sinful sweetness is the word that strikes when we talk about cakes. All love this scrumptious loaf, but as much it is tasteful, there are apprehensions regarding its health effects. While it is true that cakes are often full of sweetness, but now we have so many variations that you can consume them worry-free. When we talk about cakes, various flavours are topping the charts like chocolate, vanilla butterscotch, strawberry, and so forth. Still, there is one variety which is loaded with fresh fruits and combines the benefits of taste and health. There are best ways to display cakes in your shop through bakery cake display cases.

Brief History: 

When we talk about the origin of these cakes, it takes us back to the 18th century, when the Romans relished it on special occasions. These cakes were a mix of royal ingredients like nuts, barley, pomegranate seeds, raises, etc., all these were blended in honey. At that time, it was considered an exclusive delicacy because the ingredients used in it were expensive and rare. Nowadays, we have a modern version of this as a fresh fruit cake. The fresh fruits like pineapples, peaches, oranges, kiwis, apples, etc. are being used in fruit cakes, unlike the dry fruit cakes where key ingredients were dry fruits like walnuts, raisins, cashews, etc. 

Do Fresh Fruit Cakes Have Health Benefits? 

Whether we talk about dry fruit cakes or fresh fruit cakes, they do hold some amount of health benefits. While we can not ignore the calorie count and sugar in it, the benefits of dry fruits or fresh fruits can’t be ignored as well. 

High on energy- Consuming fruits in the morning serve as a great source of energy. One-ounce of fruit cake has 90 calories. So, one slice in the morning keeps you energized. 

Better sleep and calmness-  Dig into a slice of cake containing kiwis, cherries, berries or pineapple for increasing melatonin levels to 266% which is responsible for inducing sleep and calmness. Fruits hold medicinal properties. They also help in uplifting mood and are also anxiety relievers. 

Fibrously flavourful– These also contain a mix of different dry fruits, and nuts which has high fibre content, thus making it is good for health. Besides, dry fruits and fresh fruits like apples, strawberries, mangoes etc. are a storehouse of vitamins and minerals, which are again a bonus for health. Dried fruits also have antioxidants and polyphenols, which have helped reduce the risk of diseases like obesity and diabetes.

Better digestion– Nutmeg is often added to fruit cake; it is a medicinal herb that positively impacts the digestive functioning. 

Keep sugar at bay– When we are talking about cakes, then one of the biggest apprehensions regarding consuming it is the sugar level. Still, with fruit cakes having blueberries and strawberries as a key ingredient helps in combating diabetes. Also, raisins have low to medium glycemic index value and a little insulin index. It means that consuming these cakes will not increase the sugar level. Some people also add cinnamon to it, which again has the property of reducing blood sugar levels.

Fresh fruit cakes are loaded with several benefits, these are available in different flavours, and you can consume it worry-free and satiate your taste buds.
