Cane Sugar 101

Sugar

The Sweetener of Choice

There’s a reason Pure Cane Sugar has been a sweetener of choice for over 2,000 years. Sucrose (sugar) is a carbohydrate that is present naturally in fruits and vegetables. It’s one of nature’s most versatile ingredients. It enhances flavor, aroma, texture and browning. It balances flavor and adds moisture to preserve freshness.
