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?!
