Product Description

Product Description

Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Powdered Sugar is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane, grown and produced without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemicals. Our powdered sugar is made by simply grinding our Fairtrade Organic Sugar to a fine, fluffy powder (12x) and adding 3% organic tapioca to prevent clumping. Unlike refined white powdered sugar with its overpowering, chalky sweetness, Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Powdered Sugar retains a bit of the cane's natural molasses to give a smooth, mellow and rounded flavour. Many moms like that this organic powdered sugar is corn-free too. It is perfect for cookies, frostings, fillings, dusting, and baking. Use as a one-for-one replacement for refined powdered sugar. Try dusting whole grain waffles, French toast, or stuffed crepes with a bit of Organic Powdered Sugar for a special breakfast treat. When making simple water icing, the organic powdered sugar gives a faint golden colour and delectable mellow toffee flavour derived from the natural molasses retained in the unrefined, unbleached organic sugar. For more recipes, visit www.wholesomesweeteners.com! The Fairtrade Certified logo is Wholesome Sweeteners' guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane grown and milled. 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 commitment 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.

Yummy and I have peace of mind that when I want to use sugar for that extra (and rare in our house) treat, it will be the most natural possible. Sweet with no after taste. Real sugar and no pesticides. Why not?

I am baking a vegan wedding cake for my niece. I ordered this sugar because it is not filtered through any animals bones. There is no difference between this sugar and what you get from your supermarket except that this seems much fresher. It is very nice to use. The sugar arrived promptly and I expect to order more of it.

Purchased this locally (at a health food store) when I was looking for powdered sugar that did NOT contain cornstarch. I couldn't understand why I kept getting sick when I was making my own gluten-free and corn-free desserts. Well, I thought I was baking corn-free. I didn't realize regular powdered-sugar contained cornstarch. I tried making my own powdered sugar, but I was unable to get it processed fine enough; there was still a bit of grit. I was so happy to find this product. Though I still hope to one day be able to make my own.

It is VERY necessary to put this powdered sugar through a sifter before mixing it with other ingredients. Otherwise, it will not result in a smooth texture (e.g. frosting). Thank you to whomever shared that tip!

Definitely recommend this powdered sugar!

I use only wholesome organic sugars for my organic bakery. they really make a difference. my only complaint is that the powdered sugar is clumpy and it takes a lot of extra mixing to get my glazes smooth. I think this is because its organic though, not the brand.

I've purchased organic powdered sugar before so I have something to compare Wholesome Sweeteners organic powdered sugar to. This stuff is kind of clumpy. It reminds me of plaster of paris. I used it to sprinkle sugar on top of cookies and I had to sift it first, but there was still some clumps in the sifter.
I also used it to make icing and that came out without clumps. So, the sugars ok, but it's got to be sifted if you don't plan on mixing it with any liquids.

You have to deal with lumps. I tried sifting it and in the sifter i found hard little lumps that will not break up. Flavor is fine though. I started using Florida Crystal brand and it works great hardly have to sift it.

Love that this is organic and I'm not getting a bunch of processed sugar, but this product clumps SO BADLY that I have to sieve it every time I need to use it for something. The clumps are SO hard that it's impossible to break them up with a mixer. I literally have to get out a sieve, pour some in, push it through with a wooden spoon and put the rest of the clumps back in to smash with a hammer next time. The taste is perfectly fine - and again - prefer non-bleach treated sugar - but the texture is awful.

I do a lot of baking and confectionary work, and do whatever I can to use the least processed, most wholesome ingredients I can find. It is fairly easy to find organic, unrefined sugar near my home, but not powdered sugar. I order this to try and was pleased with its quality and texture. I roll homemade marshmallows in it, and as a coating for meltaway candies. Lovely taste. Lovely texture.
