Eco Food Friday: Sucanat Organic Sweetener
I use organic Sucanat
, which stands for Sugar Cane Natural, for all my baking needs. Sucanat is Fair Trade certified
from Costa Rica. It is made by crushing sugar cane, extracting and heating the juice, and then hand paddling the juice until it dries into porous granules. Unlike refined sugars, Sucanat retains many vitamins and minerals present in sugar cane, such as iron, calcium, vitamin B6, potassium, and chromium. You can use Sucanat in a 1:1 ratio, as you would any other granulated sugar. Not only is Sucanat better for your body than refined white sugar, the flavor will enhance all of your baking!
