Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Sucanatuser rating
Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Sucanat is a whole 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, which cools and dries the syrup, creating the dry porous granules we call Sucanat.
Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Sucanat is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane grown in Costa Rica. 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.
