Gluten Free Kabocha Pie

Thanksgiving is just around the corner which means pumpkin is the flavor of the month. A Gluten Free Kabocha Pie is a must on the menu. This pie is easy to make and tastes identical to the store-bought pumpkin pies but with considerably less calories and zero sugar added.

The added sweetness will be from our BochaSweet™ 100% kabocha extract. A fantastic sugar replacement that replaces cane sugar 1:1 without the blood sugar spikes and insulin stimulation. There is no bitter aftertaste which is commonly experienced in other sugar substitutes and contains no other additives.

For this delicious recipe, we will also be using tigernut flour which is a nutritious gluten-free flour rich in protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats. It’s actually not a nut, but a small root vegetable gaining popularity as a superfood!

Choosing BochaSweet instead of xylitol or erythritol, which are derived from birch tree or corn cob waste, just tastes better and feels better. The kabocha is a nutritious vegetable with a sensational sweetness. This sweet taste is naturally present in the raw ingredient which is why we decided to bring to the market a product extracted from the kabocha. The texture is similar to cane sugar and has absolutely no bitter or unpleasant aftertaste. It stands on its own as The Supreme Sugar Replacement. There is no need to add other sweeteners, additives, or flavors to enhance the sweetness.
