So, what is sugar from cane?

Sugar from cane is a natural sweetener derived from sugarcane, a tall perennial grass that grows in tropical and subtropical regions. The process of extracting sugar from the cane involves crushing and boiling the stalks to produce a thick, syrupy liquid that is then further refined and dried into the crystalline form we know as sugar. Unlike refined white sugar, sugar from cane retains some of the natural minerals and nutrients present in the plant, including calcium, magnesium, and iron. It is commonly used in baking, cooking, and beverages to add sweetness and flavor. With its distinct flavor and trace minerals, sugar from cane is a popular and versatile ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
