Sugar cane belongs to the grass family and is native to the warm and tropical regions of South Asia. It was originally discovered in India by the Persians and Greeks between the 4th and 6th centuries BC. Sugar and sugarcane agriculture originally catered to the very wealthy, as sugar was considered a luxury spice up until the 18th century AD. After the 18th century, sugarcane production spread from India to plantations across the Caribbean, South America, Indian Ocean nations and Pacific Island nations. The growing agriculture drove large amounts of workers to migrate in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Organic Raw Sugar Cane Juice Crystals is vegan and contains less calories than refined sugar or syrup. Furthermore, sugar cane juice has been studied for its various health benefits and nutritional value. A study conducted on chickens against coccidiosis showed that sugar cane juice extract may have an effect on protective immune responses. Chickens administered sugar cane juice extract had signicant weight gains and antibody responses when compared to chickens given placebos. The study resulted in the conclusion that sugar cane may possess immune enhancing properties and protect against coccidiosis in animals.

Evaporated cane juice is made from sugar cane but undergoes slightly less processing than white refined sugar. The result is a product that still contains some small amount of B vitamins (niacin and riboflavin) as well as calcium. As a result, some naturopathic practitioners believe that sugar cane juice is a healthier substitute for sugar. The body requires B Vitamins in order for sugar (a carbohydrate) to be properly processed by the body. If the sugar product does not contain these B vitamins, the body must search for B Vitamins to process it. This is why white refine sugar is called a negative nutrient; because it depletes vitamins from the body.

Our Organic Raw Sugar Cane Juice Crystals tastes great and is sure to be a hit when added to your favorite recipes. If you're a white sugar addict, give our sugar cane a try. Your body will thank you and so will your taste buds.
