Product Description

Product Description

Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Sugar is made from certified organic sugar cane grown in South America. The cane juice, rich in molasses, vitamins and minerals, is squeezed from fresh sugar cane, evaporated and crystallized. The result is a blonde-colored, perfectly sweet natural sugar that will enhance your favorite coffee, tea, cereal or baked goods. Use as a one-for-one replacement for refined white sugar. The Wholesome Sweeteners website is a great resource for Organic Sugar recipes! Wholesome Sweeteners has a strong commitment to sustainable Non-GMO agriculture. In adherence with strict organic standards, the sugar cane fields are green cut and are not burned or treated with herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. This is better for the environment, which ultimately, is better for everyone. This also creates the highest quality, most delicious-tasting unrefined sugar you can find. No chemicals or animal by-products are used to make or decolonize this sugar making it ideal for vegans. The Fairtrade Certified logo is Wholesome Sweeteners' guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane they grow and mill. This means that farmers can compete with factory farms, cultivate the quality of their crops, send their kids to school and build thriving communities. Thank you for choosing Wholesome Sweeteners and helping to make the world a sweeter place.

About the Brand

Wholesome Sweeteners brings the very best of nature's sweetness to you and your family every day. Wholesome believes in traditional ways, artisanal products and a very light environmental footprint. After searching the world for the best products, Wholesome has focused on the tropics, where the climate and conditions are just right for growing organic sweeteners. With Fair Trade Certified™ organic and natural sweeteners from Central and South America and Africa, Wholesome is committed to making the world a sweeter place, one spoonful at a time.

Company Overview

  • Founded in 1995 in Sugar Land, Texas, Wholesome Sweeteners supplies the American market the highest quality natural and organic sweeteners from around the world.
  • Wholesome Sweeteners pioneered efforts to bring sugar and honey into the Fair Trade movement and was the first to bring Fair Trade Certified sweeteners to American markets. Wholesome Sweeteners now offers a wide range of Fair Trade Certified, organic and natural sweeteners produced by traditional methods from nature’s best resources.

Fair Trade Certification is a promise that:
  • Farmers’ cooperatives are paid directly (no middlemen).
  • The members receive a fair and reliable set price for their crops.
  • The cooperative has access to loans and additional premiums for community and business development.
  • It’s trade, not aid. Cooperatives decide how the money is invested; the only stipulation is that every member has a vote in how the inves™ent is made.

Social Responsibility
The Fair Trade Certified™ logo represents Wholesome's commi™ent to consumers that a fair premium price is paid to the farmers’ cooperatives that supply Wholesome’s Fair Trade products.

Since initiating the Fair Trade Certified program in 2005, Wholesome Sweeteners has paid more than $800,000 directly to Fair Trade cooperative partners in Costa Rica, Malawi, Mexico and Paraguay. Fair Trade means that farmers can send their kids to school, keep their land, develop the quality of their harvest and build thriving communities.

Beyond the parameters of Fair Trade Certification, Wholesome selects suppliers based on a demonstrated commi™ent to social responsibility and community outreach.

Environmental Responsibility
Wholesome Sweeteners' ethos is shaped by a deep concern for the long-term health of the planet and all of its inhabitants.

The USDA Organic logo is Wholesome's promise that we hold every product to the highest environmental standard. Each product bearing the USDA Organic logo has been grown and milled to USDA Organic standards, without the aid of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or chemicals.

Wholesome uses traditional methods:

  • Fair Trade certification includes a commi™ent to sustainable agriculture. In recent years, unprecedented acreage has been converted from conventional agriculture to organic cultivation, reducing exposure to pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
  • From the seed stock to harvest, our sugar cane is cultivated and harvested by hand and grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
  • Wholesome’s cane fields are never burned. During the harvest, trimmings are allowed to stay where they fall, decomposing naturally, returning nutrients to the soil, helping protect topsoil and ground water and providing habitat for wildlife.
  • At the small mills in Costa Rica, Malawi and Paraguay, our sweeteners are made simply and the spent sugar cane, called bagasse, is often recycled as fuel to generate electricity for the mill and nearby villages.
  • Deep in Southern Mexico’s jungles, honeybees browse on lush wildflowers without exposure to antibiotics or chemicals.

The sugar is excellent. It is just a touch more brown than pure-white sugar, and the texture is a little on the coarse side (the grains are a bit larger). However, the sugar still dissolves and mixes just as well as regular sugar when baking or sweetening my coffee. Honestly cannot complain about the product itself.

As others have pointed out, the box comes with 12 small 1 lb. bags. This is quite surprising as I've seen other retailers selling a 4 lb. version (so aside from real bulk orders (>25 lbs) a larger size does exist). Nevertheless, when it comes to price, Amazon.com still seems to do just fine, in my opinion. I've never seen a grocery store carry a 1 lb. bag of this sugar for less than $4 (and you'd be lucky to even find it at that price). Obviously, with Subscribe and Save, you're getting a bag for about $2.50. Outlets that I've seen carrying the 4 lb. version are usually selling those anywhere from $8 to $9 each. So yes, Amazon.com could be doing a touch better, and when it comes to selling 12 tiny bags of sugar as opposed to 3 decently sized bags, obviously Amazon.com has some work to do.

When I learned that most sugar is refined and filtered with animal bones I started looking for natural, organic sugar. I've dived into the bins at Whole Foods, New Seasons and other natural food stores. But Wholesome makes better sugar than the bulk bins and, although I see more expensive varieties beckoning from the shelves that they are better (and probably are), Wholesome is good for the price. It doesn't clump. It dissolves nicely. And, best of all, it makes my baked goods have the perfect amount of sweetness.

Five stars for the sugar itself. It can be substituted 1:1 for "regular" sugar. Some other organic sugars have a higher moisture content which can cause problems when baking. It's not cost effective buying the case of 1 lb bags, however, even compared to the big "natural" food grocery chains. Why doesn't Amazon sell cases of the 4 lb or 10 lb bags, with their lower price per pound?

It is so nice to be able to buy quality organic sugar at a good price. I use it to make my jams and jellies and for daily table use.

I don't use a lot of granulated sugar but when I do, this is the brand I buy. Like other reviewers mentioned you can sometimes catch the 10lb size at Costco for much less (membership factors in cost too) but prices change here and often times you can find it priced fairly reasonably.

My most recent use for this sugar was for fresh lime-aid and soy milk ice cream; in both cases the sugar melts/blends well without excessive stirring and no settling on the bottom with the beverage and no graininess in the ice cream.

I like the fair trade aspect - a small, sweet way to help.

Unlike some other "natural/organic" sugars I've tried in stores, the flavor of this sugar is amazing. I love the 12 individual packages and the fact it's not at all clumpy.
