Our Raw Organic Sun Dried Sugar Cane Juice Crystals are a healthy alternative to refined sugar. While both sweeteners are made from sugar cane, raw sun dried sugar cane crystals does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does. Therefore, unlike refined sugar, it retains most of the nutrients found in raw organic sugar cane.
Evaporated cane juice crystals can be used just like sugar for sweetening foods and beverages as well as in cooking. Since it is considered to be more wholesome, it is also used as a sweetener in a host of processed, natural foods.
Some possible benefits of our raw organic Sugar Cane Crystals may include:
● Neutral, clean, sweet flavor
● Less calories than refined sugar or syrup
● Potential health benefits for the immune system because of the molasses component of sugar cane
● Good to 'cool' down the body especially during hot, humid weather
● Mild laxative due to its high potassium content
● Significantly increasing the activity of antioxidant enzymes because of the natural oligosaccharides
● Good source of magnesium, calcium & riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
