Product Description

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.

Product Description

Free-flowing Organic Brown Sugar. Perfect for baking. Sucanat stands for Sugar Cane Natural. A genuine whole sugar. Organic Sucanat is simply dehydrated, freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. The sugar cane is crushed daily and the juice heated to reduce it to a rich syrup, which is hand-paddled to create the Sucanat granule. Sucanat's natural molasses flavor is wonderful in chocolate-based recipes, BBQ sauces, on oatmeal and in beverages. Use as a 1-for-1 replacement for refined brown sugar in all recipes. It is a source of iron, calcium, potassium, B vitamins and chromium. The Fair Trade label guarantees the consumer a fair price is paid directly to the farmer for the sugar cane they grow. Returning real value to the primary agricultural producers means they can compete with factory farms whilst protecting sustainable farming practices. It also means they can enjoy higher living standards and develop thriving communities. A spoonful of Fair Trade Sugar really does make the world a sweeter place! Fair Trade, organic and kosher certified. Suitable for vegan, vegetarian, halal and plant-based diets. Product of Paraguay.

Organic Sucanat is many levels above regular white granulated sugar. This sugar takes baking and tea drinking to new levels of pleasure.

When holding this sugar in the palm of your hand, you will notice the irregularity of the crystals and the "dark brown sugar" color. This does have a flavor that is reminiscent of brown sugar and yet the texture is much more natural and the crystals take longer to melt on your tongue.

Recently I've been discovering a variety of more natural sweeteners. This on is perfect for tea because it not only adds sweetness; it adds a caramel flavor to teas in which you use milk. There is a purity in the flavor and you feel better because you are supporting organic farms and keeping your body healthy.

This is a one-for-one replacement for refined white or brown sugar.

Sucanat is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane. The sugar cane is "green cut." This means the fields are not burned and the leaves and tops of the cane plant are left in the field. The sugar is minimally processed and once the sugar cane is harvested it is pressed to squeeze out all the cane juice. This juice is then clarified, filtered and evaporated. This helps to remove excess water. The syrup is then crystallized and a sugar with a molasses flavor is produced. There are also vitamins, minerals and trace elements from the sugar cane plant. One teaspoon of Sucanat contains 10mg of Potassium and 6mg of Calcium.

If you are still using white sugar, try Sucanat. It might surprise you with added flavor, goodness and purity. I find the flavor to be superior to refined white sugar. This sugar will add a touch of caramel flavor to all your baking.

If you are looking for an even deeper flavor for chocolate recipes, try Muscovado sugar.

This is the best price anywhere, unless you're buying it in 25- or 50-pound bags. I parted ways with refined sugar a long time ago, and since raw honey doesn't suit every recipe for which sweetness is called, Sucanat fills the gap beautifully. I've been testing ice cream recipes and it really does contribute a rich, caramel flavour to every blend. None of us has noticed the typical sugar highs and lows with this product, but perhaps that is due at least in part to always accompanying it with plenty of good fats.

One caveat, though, and it is absolutely not a strike against this product: it won't make traditional caramel! Be forewarned. When heated and melted, it becomes molasses. I happen to like the bitter, smoky taste, but it didn't really suit the recipe. I'll just stick with its natural caramel qualities from now on.

This small issue aside, it is a delicious, rich-tasting and high-quality product that will contribute a deep, full, warm taste and not just direct sweetness, to whatever you're cooking.

This sugar is healthier than the processed kind and super tasty. Amazon offers it at an AWESOME price, but if you have a serious sweet tooth I would caution against purchasing it in such a large amount. It is so good that it takes some constraint not to stir it into every cup of tea, bowl of oats, and picture of lemon aid. Remember that is is STILL SUGAR and should be used sparingly! There are healtier alternatives out there, but for that special cake or an occasional cup of hot cocoa this is my pick.

This sucanat is sooo good! I use it for baking and for my coffee. Organic Sucanat has a great molasses flavor that adds complexity to your cookies. Even when I make my normal oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies, they fly off the plate. Since the granules are dark, it will make your lighter baked goods, darker. I made blondie brownies with this sugar, and they came out rather dark - but the flavor was very good. I highly recommend this as a natural sugar substitute.

This Sucanat tastes really good!!!! I mainly use it for my coffee in the morning along with half and half cream and I love it. Tastes so much better than the sugar cubes I've used in the past. Healthier, too. I can taste the difference and will not use white sugar in my coffee anymore. Worth every penny!! Highly recommended!!

With the baking season upon me I realized I was in need of lots of sucanant. I have only used this to replace all brown sugar in baking recipes for years now. I usually buy this brand in bulk at my local natural foods store. I thought I would check Amazon, and boy am I glad I did!

What an amazing buy! I signed up for the subscribe and save deal and it came today. What a marvelous savings. I love this stuff so am even happier that we are saving money and still able to enjoy organic sweeteners.

I ordered the powdered sugar as well, VERY spendy locally. Great deal here too. I add just a little more liquid to my recipes to compensate for the absorbtion of the sucanant. Great results.
