Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic SucanatÂ® (which stands for Sugar Cane Natural), is a whole unrefined cane sugar. It's made by simply crushing freshly cut sugar cane, extracting the juice and heating it in a large vat. Once the juice is reduced to a rich, dark syrup, it is hand-paddled. Hand paddling cools and dries the syrup, creating the dry, porous granules we call Sucanat. Nothing is added and nothing is taken out! Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Sucanat is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane. Because Sucanat still contains all of the cane's natural molasses, it has a deep brown color and a distinct, natural molasses flavor that enhances many foods. It is naturally gluten-free, vegan, and kosher, and can be substituted for brown sugar in any recipe and it is especially good in chocolate-based recipes, baked goods, BBQ sauces and marinades. It contains trace amounts of iron, calcium, vitamin B6, potassium and chromium.
Chefs and nutritionists love the rich flavor of unrefined Organic Sucanat.
