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.

FYI "brown sugar" is nothing more than plain sugar + molasses, organic and fair trade if you wish. Mix with a fork 1 cup white sugar with 1 tablespoon molasses for light brown, or with 2 tablespoons molasses for dark brown. If this is inconvenient, go ahead and buy brown sugar. I bought it in the fall for all the baking I do around holiday time. Organic and fair trade is important to me, so Wholesome Sweeteners is the one I chose.

Here's the trick to softening - and then keeping soft - brown sugar. Get a container that you can seal well. Then purchase a terra cotta brown sugar disk: Brown Sugar Disc - Various, Eagle, Cat

First, soak the terra cotta disk as directed. If the brown sugar is so hard you can't get it in the container, then put the soaked disk into the packagine. Otherwise, put sugar into the container, add the soaked disk and seal. The next day your sugar will be soft.

I have one of these disks. One time I forgot to seal my container and the brown sugar dried out. I re-soaked my terra cotta disk, added it back to the container and the next day it was all softened.

I love wholesome sweeteners sugars and buying it off Amazon (especially if you have Amazon Prime) is a good deal.

Love this brown sugar! It has a great taste- the molasses flavor really comes out and doesn't taste all fake-y like "regular" brown sugar.
No issues with clumping or drying out so far- I've bought this a few times and my current bag is a few months old with no problems. I don't bake often so having a nice resealable bag is handy. I don't use it for much else, sometimes sprinkle on oatmeal if we're out of maple syrup. I'm attaching a photo to show how nice the consistency is. It looks so pretty! Ha ha
Organic/nonGMO is important to me so I'm happy to have found this for my regular baking.

I've never had a problem with this sugar. Unlike other reviewers, mine doesn't dry out at all, let alone from the get-go. It's richly flavored, its texture is delicate and tender, and best of all, it's organic. No nasty chemicals! That alone would make it worth it. It's great for baking or eating straight (strawberries dipped in sour cream and then brown sugar... I'm drooling just thinking about it). It's the only brown sugar I've used in the last two years and I'll continue doing so.

This isnt as cheap as the regular brown sugar you purchase in the super market, but its much healthier. To me healthier, organic food is worth it. The consistency of the sugar is same as regular brown sugar. I liked buying the 6 at a time so I can stock up the pantry. I'll buy again when these run low.

I am glad I found this product on Amazon. The box of six packages of brown sugar were very fresh, not hard as some store brands that sit on a shelf for eons. The sugar itself is of great quality and tastes fantastic. My wife loves it in bowls of cream of wheat (wheat farina). The whole family uses it for baking. My primary reason for liking this brand is I know the company helps the farmers who produce it, and it is produced in a manner that is less harmful to the environment. Part of any products value is not just the product itself but also in knowing how it is made and being sure of the products claims, in this case the sugar is certified as USDA Organic, and it is Fair Trade certified.

I am an avid baker and use organic products as much as possible. After trying Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Light Brown Sugar I will never to back to a national grocery store brand.

I really like the consistency of this sugar. The granular size is larger than other national grocery store brown sugars. The sugar pieces spoon out in a more separated fashion and are not as finely clumped together as national grocery store brown sugars. I first tried this in my chocolate chip cookie recipe with fantastic results. The batter mixed beautiful, cookies baked deliciously moist.

This sugar is a bit more expensive, but it is organic and baking results are worth the price. You'll notice the difference!

Gave up any Sugar that It's not Certified organic or Non GMO but it's expensive. I can live with about $3 for a bag of this. I've used it from Cookies to Monkey bread glaze and so good. It really tastes better and of course it's great that It's made cleanly. Also, the palm coconut sugar is amazing and great for tropical cooking /baking.
