A granulated form of unrefined cane sugar; made from cane juice. Sugar in this form is a whole food and therefore retains all of the vitamins and minerals found in nature. Sucanat is stirred into the dry ingredients when making baked goods, because it does not emulsify with creamed ingredients. It imparts many of the same characteristics as brown sugar (which can be substituted for Sucanat on a one to one basis), and is found in health food stores nationwide.
