We are proud to offer Organic Sugar that has been processed to optimize natural flavor, sustain the environment, and enrich communities.
Organic sugar cane is milled within 24 hours of harvest. At the mill, the cane is crushed and cane juice is collected. The cane juice, rich in molasses, vitamins and minerals, is extracted, clarified, evaporated and crystallized. The result is a blonde-colored, delicious and natural organic sugar.
Fun Fact: After crushing the sugar cane, fibrous remnants known as bagasse are dried and then burned to generate energy for the mills. The energy from the bagasse is nearly twice the amount actually needed to make sugar. The excess energy is fed back to the local grid, providing electricity to nearby communities. How sweet is that?!

Keep your baked goods fresh with enzyme products. They maintain softness and resilience for longer than anything else on the market!
POWERFresh® products use either G4 (for buns and rolls) or new G+ enzymes (uniquely formulated for bread and specialties) to create powerful solutions that exceptionally delay staling in baked goods.
G+ enzyme technology is extraordinarily efficient at modifying starch during baking. This new amylase lowers the rate of amylopectin retrogradation, hence slowing the speed at which bread stales. The result is substantial crumb softening and moistness combined with improved resilience and elasticity.
Since proteins and arabinoxylans also contribute to the firming of breadcrumb, POWERFresh® products feature additional enzyme activities that optimize results for individual applications.
