[Differences between traditional mooncakes 】Mid-Autumn Festival is 3 days to go, we believe that everyone is preparing fruits and the most beloved traditional mooncake for admiring the moon. The main ingredients of traditional mooncakes often include lotus seed paste and salted egg yolk.
The traditional method of making lotus seed paste fillings usually requires boiling the lotus seeds until soft. Lotus seed will then be drained and ground into a smooth paste with sugar. Afterward, the lotus seed paste is stir-fried with oil, this can enhance the smell. Last but not least maltose is stirred in, which is the main source of sugar. Traditional lotus seed paste and yolks mooncakes usually use the yolk of salted duck eggs, which are processed and contain high sodium.
Friendly reminder: It is not recommended to have more than a quarter of a traditional mooncake a day.
