Wholesome! Sucanat® (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! Sucanat is made from Non-GMO Project Verified 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 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.
