I've now fully converted to using this sugar as it tastes so wonderful in my cooking and my coffees. We don't use very much sugar at all now and I attribute it to the fact that it has helped me lower my family's "sweetness" threshhold so as a result I've ended up using less of it. Since we don't eat it whole the slight coarseness and irregularity of the granules is never a problem as they dissolve very well. I also pop it in my Thermomix to grind it to a finer icing sugar consistency if I need to dust it. Ironically the only "trouble" with this sugar is that, to me, white sugar now tastes like saccharine or some other artificial sweetener! Oh and I live in Australia and buy maybe 6 bags each year and I believe it's worth the effort.

This is more grainy than the Sucanat from Wholesome Sweetners, it seems similar to Rapunzul Rapadura. But good stuff overall, and a great value from iherb.

I have been trying to move to eating whole foods and choosing healthy natural sweeteners over artificial ones. I had a few recipes that called for Sucanat, but couldn't find it anywhere locally. iHerb had it for a reasonable price and shipped it directly to my house. A great product and a great service!

Has a complex flavor that enhances a cup of coffee. Looking forward to trying it in my baking.

I'm happy with my sugar. It was a good price.

I made chocolate fudge with this and it imparts an interesting and pleasant flavour. You might not always want that flavour in your cooking as it can overpower the intended flavour. I guess it would work well with a caramel flavour.

My kefir loves Now Foods Sucanat than other brands. It is miracle that they grow faster and bigger in size after I change to it. I would be loyal to this brand as it is no other alternatives so far ! A very good pick from iherbs.

Great substitute for refined sugar but you do have to experiment with the quantities used.
