Rapadura Sugar by Changing Habits
Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane (using a press)
What is Rapadura?
Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane (using a press), which is then evaporated over low heats, whilst being stirred with paddles, then ground to produce a grainy sugar. It has not been cooked at high heats nor spun to change it into crystals and the molasses has not been separated from the sugar. It is produced organically, and does not contain chemicals or anti-caking agents.
'Rapadura' – can also be called Panela
Rapadura is a whole food product which can vary according to sugar cane variety, soil type and weather. This is why one batch of Rapadura may be lighter or darker than the last batch.
Because Rapadura is not separated from the molasses and is not subject to being heated at high temperatures, (it is dehydrated at a low heat), the vitamins and minerals have been retained.
