Also known as "chancaca" in Peru, whole cane sugar is a natural sweetener derived from sugar cane. It is a natural substitute for blonde or white sugar, its main difference being that whole cane sugar is a less processed and more natural product. It is often used both in sweet recipes and to sweeten beverages.
This product can be consumed directly or used as a sweetener in food industry processes. The product is a natural and healthy sugar with nutritional benefits.
