Organic sugar is made from organically certified sugar canes. It is produced in accordance with the USDA’s National Organic Program and certified organic by Quality Assurance International. Organic sugar is an unbleached, unrefined sweetener that you can use in place of refined sugars. The Organic Sugar process helps the sugar to retain most of its essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Because of its unique processing, organic sugar has a mild caramel flavor that is excellent for baking or sweetening drinks. It can be purchased in its granulated form in bags and even comes packaged as individual packets. Domino’s is one commonly known sugar distribution company that is now producing its own brand of organic sugar which is available in a 24 ounce bag.
Organic sugar is not only used for cooking and baking, but is also used as a main ingredient in some body care products. You can purchase organic sugar body scrubs that are combined with essential oils like
jojoba and grapeseed, along with cocoa butter and fruit extracts. Organic sugar body scrubs are a great exfoliating treatment for your skin, leaving it polished and deeply moisturized. They smell so wonderful, you might be tempted to eat it, but don’t!
