Less Oil, More Flavor: The Magic of Big Apple Donuts & Coffee’s Ingredient Upgrade

Indulging in a delightful donut from Big Apple Donuts & Coffee has become a more savory experience, thanks to our ingredient upgrade. We believe that our customers should be able to indulge in their favorite sweet treat guilt-free. That’s why we’ve introduced an ingredient upgrade to our donuts, which means less oil and more flavor.

The Secret Behind the Upgrade

Our ingredient upgrade involves a change from soy-based shortening to palm-based shortening in frying our donuts. This switch results in a reduction in the rate of oil absorption in our donuts, translating to fewer calories and less oily mouthfeel, but still preserving the delightful, indulgent flavor our customers love.

Benefits of Less Oil

This change in our process means that our donuts become a healthier fat option. Consuming less oil can have a range of benefits for your health, including reduced risk of heart disease and better weight management. Even the American Heart Association recommends a diet lower in saturated fats, which includes reducing oil intake.

Our Donuts Still Deliver the Flavor

Our ingredient upgrade does not compromise on flavor. Despite being less oily, our donuts are still delightfully delicious and satisfying. Whether you’re a fan of our classic offerings or our more unique creations, you’ll find that our donuts continue to deliver on taste and satisfaction.
