Instead of artificial sweeteners or refined white sugar, evaporated cane juice is a healthy alternative when you just absolutely need to have something sweet. Refined white sugar is actually subject to ‘over-processing’, which means that consumption of this type of sweetener may lead to diabetes and it increases the risks of certain types of cancers.
Now, when you use evaporated cane juice, this type of natural sweetener is not subject to the same degree of processing as refined sugar. This makes cane juice a lot healthier, and it also has additional health benefits. Cane juice is rich in vitamin B2 or riboflavin, which helps promote healthy red blood cells.
There are several forms of evaporated cane juice that you can buy in the supermarket, including milled cane sugar, Demerara and Muscovado sugar. Unlike refined white sugar, these types of sweeteners have subtler molasses flavor which adds a unique taste to your food and drinks.
