Crystal Cane Sugar - 100% certified organic sugar cane. It is a "first crystallization" sugar which means the cane is harvested, the juice is extracted, any field impurities are removed and it is crystallized. All this is done within twenty-four hours of the harvest. Because it is far less processed than traditional white sugars, it retains a natural blond color the molasses is retained rather than removed, which contributes to a distinctive flavor profile compared to traditional organic sugar. This is a perfect one-for-one replacement for conventionally refined white sugar.
