Wholesome! Fair Trade Organic Cane 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 good. Organic sugar is naturally gluten free and can be used as a one-for-one replacement for refined white sugar. Less refined sugars are more susceptible to drawing moisture because they contain molasses and become hard. To remedy this: use a terra cotta "sugar buddy" in the container with your sugar. Or put an apple slice or piece of bread in the container.
