Muscovado Sugar is different from our standard golden light sugar in that it is completely unrefined – the sugar cane juice is just boiled down until it becomes solid. It is not a crystallised sugar and it retains all the nutritional value and flavour of the whole molasses.
Organic Fairtrade Muscovado Sugar - 400g
Muscovado sugar can be used anywhere soft brown sugar would be used and it will impart a richer, more complex flavour. Perfect for your fruitcake, gingerbread or chocolate brownies.
Muscovado Sugar comes from the Norandino/CEPICAFE cooperative in the north of Peru where it is usually grown as a secondary product by small scale coffee and cocoa farmers. By buying this sugar, you are helping to improve the lives of Peruvian sugar producers. Traditionally, these farmers have struggled to earn an adequate income from growing sugar as the market prices they receive are very low. By selling their sugar through their own co-operative to Trade Aid, these farmers benefit in a number of ways:
- They receive better prices and are paid sooner, and
- an additional payment Trade Aid makes on top of those prices - a social premium - funds a whole range of services that the co-operative offers to its members, and which they would not otherwise receive.
