Wholesome Fair Trade Organic Cane Sugar is made from certified organic sugar cane grown in South America. The cane juice, rich in molasses, 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. Wholesome has a strong commitment to sustainable Non-GMO agriculture. In adherence with strict organic standards, the organic sugar cane fields are green cut and are not burned or treated with herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. This is better for the environment, which ultimately, is better for everyone. This also creates the highest quality, most delicious-tasting unrefined sugar you can find. No chemicals or animal by-products are used to make or decolorize this sugar making it ideal for vegans. The Fair Trade Certified logo is Wholesome’s guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane they grow and mill. 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.
