Sun-Dried (Raw) Cane Juice Crystals (250g, 1kg, 4.54kg) - Organic
Made from 100% certified organic sugar cane. The sugar cane hails from Ecuador, where it is grown in highly mineralized volcanic soil.
This is sugar, but not as you know it! This ticks all our boxes.
It’s raw – oddly enough, most of the sweeteners that are popular among raw fooders are not actually raw. This is truly raw.
It’s high in minerals – rich in nutrients such as calcium, iron and magnesium.
It’s low GI – it’s all in the processing. This is unrefined, so you won't get a sugar crash.
It tastes great – the most important factor of course! Use it in your raw cakes and chocolates or as a sweetener for your drinks.
It’s sweet – properly sweet, unlike some of the other healthy sweeteners, so you don’t need to use a lot.
The cane sugar is fresh pressed, then sun-dried, and then put through a cooling process to crystalize. This is a "first crystallization" sugar which means the cane is harvested, the juice is extracted, all impurities are removed and then it is crystallized. This is all done within twenty-four hours of the harvest. Because it is far less processed than traditional white sugar, it retains a natural blond color and a delicious natural taste.
While both white refined sugar and Cane Juice Crystals are made from sugar cane, sun-dried Cane Juice Crystals do not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does. Unlike refined sugar, the nutrients are retained and available in the Cane Juice Crystals.
Cane juice is not a commonly allergenic food and is not known to contain measurable amounts of oxalates or purines. The crystals are a nice fine grain, so they dissolve easily into oils and liquids.
How To Use
Use in place of regular sugar, coconut sugar, or xylitol in any of your recipes. Sun-dried cane juice crystals are naturally sweet with a neutral flavour, and a soft texture that dissolves into whatever its added to, making it the perfect all-purpose sweetener.
