ORGANIC PANELA SUGAR, unrefined
Certified organic, Fair Trade
Panela (aka Rapadura) is made by crushing the whole sugar cane to extract and collect the juice, evaporating the water content through boiling, and then pouring it into molds where it crystallizes and hardens into blocks. Depending on the end use it may be sold in blocks or discs or ground into the desired granular texture. Panela is a traditional food produced mostly in small-scale on-farm facilities and consumed in practically all tropical and subtropical regions.
Qualities: as pure, unrefined, dried sugar cane juice, panela retains many minerals, vitamins and other trace substances such as antioxidants which have shown to be health supportive. It has a rich and caramel like flavor compared to brown sugar, which is generally just white sugar with a small amount of molasses added back to it.
Common use: Panela is sold in many forms, including liquid, granulated, and solid blocks, and can easily substitute any other granular sugar used for canning of foods as well as in confectionery, soft drinks, baking, and vinegar- and wine-making.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place. Refrigeration not required

The best sugar
The panela sugar is an excellent product! Thanks for carrying it!
The best sugar ever!
Super yummy and deep complex flavour
We love this sugar for making our own granola. We’ve also used it in Kombucha brewing and it’s delicious in that application too. We much prefer this sugar to refined sugars. This tastes much closer to the actual plant it came from!
for full on super sweetness, this is the stuff. the intensity of sweet means that very little is needed in baking to give it that sweet yumminess, yay.
This dark unrefined sugar is like the traditional East Indian sugar called Gur, but ground up and organic too! I am so glad that you are bringing this product in!
