Rapadura

Rapadura is an unrefined sweetener. It fits well with our “real food” approach to nutrition. It is cane juice that has been dehydrated and then ground into a powder. Unlike other sweeteners it is not thickened in a centrifuge, separated and then re-thickened and finally divided from its naturally occurring molasses. This lack of processing leaves all the minerals such as silica and iron in tact and readily usable. Now remember it is still a sweetener. With sweeteners comes sugar and with sugar comes insulin. We know insulin is our primary fat storage hormone so if you are still working on leaning out any sweetener, even a healthy on like Rapadura, must be used in strict moderation.
