The perfect substitute for brown and white sugar, Wholesome Natural Fair Trade Whole Cane Sugar (also known as Sucanat® or Panela) is a wholly unrefined cane sugar. As Whole Cane Sugar still contains all of the sugarcane’s natural molasses, it has a deep brown color and a distinct, natural flavor that’s ideal for chocolate-based recipes, baked goods, BBQ sauces, marinades, and more.
Made with Care
Whole Cane Sugar is made by crushing freshly-cut sugarcane, extracting its juice, and heating the juice in a large vat. The heating process turns the juice into a rich dark syrup, which is subsequently cooled by continuous hand-paddling and stirring. Whole Cane Sugar consists of the flavorful dried granules left behind after the liquid is dehydrated.
Wholesome’s Natural Fair Trade Whole Cane Sugar contains trace amounts of iron, calcium, Vitamin B6, Potassium and Chromium. No chemicals, bone char, or animal byproducts are used during processing. Basically nothing is added or taken out, resulting in one of the best brown and white sugar substitutes on the market.
Our Natural Fair Trade Whole Cane Sugar is Fair Trade Certified, and Fair Trade premiums go directly to the farming communities that grow and harvest the sugarcane. These premiums help to provide education, healthcare, community infrastructure and more.
