Raw - Cane Sugar & Coconut Blossom Sugar
Our raw cane sugar selection consists of saccharifying cane / raw cane sugar with various natural ingredients such as vanilla, coconut, cardamom, and cinnamon. These mixtures are finely tuned and have a delicate aroma.
What is natural sugar cane?
Raw cane sugar is produced from sugar cane. Saccharum officinarum itself is a tropical herb (Poaceae) and originates in East Asia. The barrel has a height of about 3-6 meters and a diameter of about 2-4.5 cm.
They produce three types of sugar from Saccharum officinarum.
- White sugar (more than once refined)
- Light brown, which is a raw cane seed (refined with a low molasses base)
- The whole brown one is not improved but left natural; the molasses' intensity is very high, therefore, with the typical caramelized flavor.
General botanical information
The plant is not very demanding; it thrives at temperatures between 25 and 30 ° C and requires much water. But its roots must not remain in stagnant water; for this reason, many plantations are located on the hills. This way, the water flows down the hills naturally, and the plant is not likely to rot. The cold influences growth; in fact, the lower the temperature, the more the plant does not grow until it completely stops when the outside temperature reaches 15 degrees Saccharum officinarum improves.
Today, Saccharum officinarum grows in many tropical and subtropical regions such as India, Brazil, Australia, and South Africa. Sugar production is pervasive and requires much work.
Production of Natural Cane Sugar
Sugar cane contains around 10-20% sucrose. After the harvest, it is freed from the leaves and finely chopped. The next manufacturing process is to take the finely chopped pieces of sugar cane and press them with a couple of very heavy rollers to extract the juice completely until exhaustion. This sweet juice is then filtered, thickened, processed by crystallization, and refining. Raw sugar still contains an essential part of molasses.
Sugar, like all spices, should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. We recommend packs with screw sealing glass. They are ecological and easy to clean. If well preserved, sugar-like salt retains its characteristics for years.
