Sugar in the Raw
I have decided to switch to Sugar in the Raw as my sweetener of choice for the following reasons listed on their website http://www.sugarintheraw.com/:
"On the island of Maui lie fertile tropical plantations where the rich volcanic soil is warmed by the Pacific sun, fed by mountain waters, and cooled by friendly tradewinds. Here the conditions are perfect for growing sugar cane, nature's own sweetener.Sugar In The Raw Premium Turbinado Sugar is made using 100% pure Hawaiian cane sugar from the initial pressing of the cane, allowing the natural molasses to remain in the crystals. The flavor is sweet and rich. The color is natural amber."
I like that its natural and uprocessed; I think these things lend themselves to being overall more healthy than processed offerings. I was able to order an entire case for $45.00 (shipping included) which seemed like a fair deal. I prefer to buy things (without expiration dates) in bulk to reduce packaging and transport. I bought mine here:
Sugar In The Raw Bulk - Case
12 boxes, 2 lbs each. 24 lbs net.Sugar In The Raw bulk contains the same degree of sweetness as ordinary refined sugar, but its hearty natural flavor remains untouched.Use it to enhance the flavor of fruit, complement a cup of coffee, or sweeten a bowl of cereal. Try it for cooking and baking, and savor the delicious, old fashioned taste!Serving size 1 tsp. Servings per container 227. Calories per serving 15.Buying a case saves you $33!
Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
