Whole Cane Dulce Sugar

Region: Tayutic Valley

sugarMade from dried unrefined sugarcane juice, Dulce is a gorgeous, soft and crumbly sugar. It has a complex and lingering caramel flavour, with notes of malt and molasses.

This organic sugar cane is grown in the Tayutic Valley in Costa Rica and is the result of a very careful and labour intensive process.

After being cut, the sugar cane travels to the local ‘ingenio’ where the juice is pulped from the cane fibre. The fibre is dried and used as fuel for the boilers that reduce the juice to a thick, dark syrup called sugar ‘honey’. The honey is poured into a cooling vat and stirred manually with huge paddles to evaporate the last of the moisture, condensing into the fine grains of what the locals call ‘dulce’.

Dulce is one of the only sugars that is not refined. This means that all of the critical natural vitamins, minerals and trace nutrients of the cane are preserved, making it much better for you than other types of sugar!
