Our story… why we source and supply Rapadura Sugar

For many years, Cyndi has recommended including natural sugar as part of a healthy diet. Our organic Rapadura Sugar is unrefined cane sugar sourced from the Valle region in Western Columbia. It is pressed and naturally dried at low temperatures to maintain nutritional properties and there is no other processing involved, unlike other sugars that can be highly processed, refined and bleached.

What is Rapadura?

Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane (using a press), which is then evaporated over low heats, whilst being stirred with paddles, then ground to produce a grainy sugar. It has not been cooked at high heats nor spun to change it into crystals and the molasses has not been separated from the sugar.  It is produced organically, and does not contain chemicals or anti-caking agents.

‘Rapadura’ can also be called Panela, Raspadura, Chancaca or Piloncillo, depending on where it is made.

Rapadura is a whole food product which can vary according to sugar cane variety, soil type and weather. This is why one batch of Rapadura may be lighter or darker than the last batch.

Because Rapadura is not separated from the molasses and is not subject to being heated at high temperatures, (it is dehydrated at a low heat), the vitamins and minerals have been retained.

Rapadura syrup – know as Maleo

Maleo syrup is made by combining filtered water with Changing Habits Rapadura Sugar. It is heated on a very low temperature so as not to destroy any of the nutrition. Use this syrup in baking, smoothies and in raw desserts.

Use 2 cups of Rapadura sugar to 1 cup of water – dissolve in a saucepan on low heat or in Thermomix for 5 minutes at 50 degrees C. Pour into glass jar and store in fridge.

Please refer to our Disclaimer regarding our products.

Rapadura sugar can be used cup for cup as an alternative to sugar in all your baking and cooking. This can be adjusted to your tastebuds as rapadura has a rich caramel flavour you may find you are able to use less sugar.

If you are unused to the grainy texture of Rapadura, it can be ground in the Thermomix (or a powerful blender) to a fine powder to help it dissolve better.

In Colombia, Rapadura is not only used as a sweetener for cooking and baking, it is also dissolved in water and ice is added along with a squeeze of lemon then served as an energy boosting summer drink. On cold nights, the same recipe applies using hot water.

Storage instructions: Keep in airtight pouch and store in cool, dry place.

Differences in sugars

‘Raw’ sugar is not really raw – it has been heated at high temperatures and a lot of the minerals and vitamins are gone. It’s better than refined sugar because it has a little of the molasses still clinging to it. Some sugar is sold as ‘organic’ raw sugar, and people think this means it’s unrefined – all it really means is that it’s grown with organic agricultural methods, then refined as usual… the juice (molasses) has been mostly removed, and there’s not really much goodness in it.

White sugar is refined much further… the raw sugar is centrifuged again, then the crystals are dissolved, boiled, and crystallized again into white sugar, and any lingering goodness has completely disappeared.

Brown sugar is just white sugar mixed with molasses.

    From the moment you open the pack you will fall in love. It smells amazing and tastes even better. It gives a nice sweetness and in some uses a beautiful caramel flavour! The only sugar I use now.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    I only use this product when making baked goods. It is a beautiful golden colour compared to the dark brown rapadura sugar I have seen in the health shops.

    This sugar is all we use in our household. We love it and I don’t feel bad using it in smoothies for the kids.
