How Sweet Will You Go?

27 Jan 2018

‘Sugar Free’ is a term often used in branding. Despite the fact that it sounds good, the term does not say much. In this workshop you will learn to evaluate what you want from refined sugar and its alternatives. What are the benefits of sweeteners and its believed dangers? Together with EAT ART collective, Mediamatic aims to democratize the benefits of the food industry and bring them back home. Meet the components of these products and get your hands dirty on all kinds of anything-but-sugar.

Sweet Alternatives

It seems ‘sugar free’ is a health bonus to go along with a matcha cappuccino and promises something else than it can deliver. According to Eat-art Collective, this taps into the current hype on healthy food. Often, the wish to be sugar free exists without much public knowledge of what sweet alternative actually takes sugar’s place. In their series of Experimental workshops, the EAT ART collective sets out to inform the public on the secrets hold in the food industry. Have you ever heard of the protein thaumatin and did you know it is 2000x more potent than sugar? 

What you will do

In this workshop you will learn more about these sweet alternatives and learn how to work with your own. After providing you with the necessary information on sweet alternatives for sugar, together with Alexander and Lukas from the EAT ART collective you will also look at your own sweet priorities. What do you want from refined sugar and its alternatives? What are your priorities? How sweet will you choose to go if you actually know what you're talking about? In taking on a more open attitude towards the possible benefits and believed dangers this workshop imagines and experiments with these alternatives together.
