Organic Rapadura is an unrefined sugar, popular for its unique caramel flavour, fine grain and gorgeous golden colour. It is produced by simply evaporating the water from the organic sugar cane juice. It has high nutritional value as it retains most of the natural vitamins and minerals, because, unlike other sugar it is not separated from the nutrient dense molasses part of the sugar cane during the pressing and drying process.
Rapadura is the perfect product for baking and the sweetening of food and drinks. Simply substitute 1 cup of rapadura for 1 cup of other sugars (e.g. white/raw/brown) in any recipe. In Colombia it is dissolved in water with ice and a touch of lemon and served as an energy boosting summer drink. Why not try this yourself!
Organic Rapadura is made from organically grown sugar cane, mostly through fair trade programs in Colombia and Brazil. Organic rapadura is also called organic panela.
