The Fairtrade Certified logo is Wholesome Sweeteners' guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane grown and milled.

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.

If you're looking for a well priced raw organic sugar with a good flavor you won't do much better than buying this from Amazon. I really like the flavor of this sugar and while I like some of their Fair Trade sugars a little better (their non-organic Turbinado from Malawi is hard to beat) I've got little kids so I'm trying to stick with organic products when possible.

Someone in a previous review claimed this is bleached. They may be mistaking this for a "brown" sugar (which isn't bleached but it is refined into a white sugar [often using an acid] and then the molasses is added back in). As the name makes clear this is a raw Turbinado sugar. That means it is raw cane that is spun in a low speed centrifuge (i.e. "turbine") just enough to remove most of the cane plant detritus. While this version is raw you can find plenty of Turbinado sugar that has been baked or steamed.

You can use this sugar pretty much anywhere you've been using regular white sugar. If you've got a recipe that calls for bakers sugar then this will probably be too coarse. This won't melt as easily as white sugar: I find that around 375 degrees it caramelizes nicely but at 350 I still get crunchy bits of sugar. I kind of like the crunchy bits but if you don't turn the heat up a notch. If you are putting this in cereal it won't dissipate as easily as plain white sugar but this isn't something that ever bothered me. I like that is has a more interesting flavor than white sugar and that lets me use a little less of it. Anything that helps the wasteline is a good thing in my book.

Incidentally if you are shopping around and see something called "Demerara" sugar it's just the English name for sugar made in pretty much the same way as Turbinado sugar (there are text book definitions of these things but most of the sugar makes aren't reading them so don't get too worked up about the name).

Been purchasing this product for years. I have enjoyed it's dark color and molasses like taste. I opened a new shipment this morning and immediately noticed that the color of the produce has changed. Instead of the usual dark amber color, the sugar is almost blond. Upon tasting it I found that along with the loss of color it has also lost much of it's unique taste. It's almost like using white sugar. I think this will be the LAST order from this supplier for me.

If you have order this product previously, brace yourself for a major change. As of 5/28/2014 the grains of sugar are brown and small, prior to this the grains of sugar were a beautiful deep amber color and large (over 2x the size of the current batch). I have posted a photo of the old and new batches of sugar side by side - please see this for clarification. The other thing that I noticed is that the odor of the new batch of sugar smells heavily of molasses (more than even dark brown sugar), the previous batch does not have this strong of a molasses odor. I purchased the previous batch about 3 months ago.

I have been using this sugar for the past 5 years and love it. I _really_ hope this is a temporary issue with the product.

**UPDATE**
After using the sugar to make iced tea several times I noticed that the viscosity (thickness) of the tea had drastically changed compared to the sugar received prior. More than that, I always brew my tea in 1 container and make a simple syrup in another mason jar with boiling water and this raw sugar -- when the boiling water hits this (the new batch) sugar it seems that the brown coloring (molasses) washes right off of the sugar and white sugar crystals are left at the bottom of the jar. This did not happen with the prior batches of this sugar - the deep amber coloring of that sugar seemed to be the entire crystal, but on this batch the brown coloring seems to be just on the outside of the crystals.

I make the crunchy shortbread cookies from the recipe on the bag constantly. This is a clean tasting sugar but it won't melt in brownies.

12 packs is a lot but I am nearly half way through this order and have no regrets buying in bulk.

I have purchased this item and brand several times now, usually in bulk. It is a much healthier alternative to white sugar. We love this in baking, recipes, over oatmeal, really with anything. We use it cup for cup compared to standard sugar and the best deal on it in bulk I have found in our area is through Amazon. I do a lot of baking and making most things from scratch at home to save our family money and eat healthier. This product is a big part of me being able to achieve this. I did have trouble with one order where 1 of the 12 bags had an issue. I contacted Amazon and they replaced the whole order for me. Very very nice and generous. I can not recommend this product enough, very happy with it each and every time I have purchased it!!

This is my favorite sugar for my morning cup of coffee. It's sweet and has a nice bit of molasses flavor without being too dark or too flavored. It doesn't overwhelm the flavor of my coffee, just adds to it.
It's also wonderful on top of sugar cookies hot out of the oven, sprinkled over farina, or just a few crystals sprinkled on homemade chocolate candies. It adds something special. One of my daughter's favorite treats is simply frozen phyllo dough thawed, brushed with a bit of butter and sprinkled with this and baked until golden. It looks very special, and if you fill pockets with Nutella and a good jam and bake them with a bit of this sprinkled on top you have a very easy dessert that looks and tastes very special.
