A 500g bag of this lovely soft, full-flavoured sugar.
This is sugar, but not as you know it: made from the whole cane, it retains all the vitamins, minerals and molasses found in the sugar cane plant. The name is a contraction of 'Sucre de Canne Naturel'; Sucanat is the brand name of Pronatec, who are based in Switzerland, and make this from sugar grown in Costa Rica.
Previously, we have supplied rapadura sugar, which is essentially the same thing, but from a different brand. However, recently it had become quite hard - and difficult to handle in the larger sacks. This variety is beautifully soft and flows well. In addition, it's labelled as Fairtrade on the bulk sack.
This sugar is similar to jaggery, panela and muscovado sugar, and is sometimes called 'evaporated cane juice', as it's made by extracting the juice mechanically from the sugar cane, and then heating and cooling it to form the brown grainy crystals.

This sugar is suitable for vegans and can be used in the same way as regular sugar - it may take a little more time to mix and dissolve, but does have a wonderful caramel-like flavour.
