Frequently Asked Questions

What is organic sugar?

Organic sugar is extracted from organically cultivated sugarcane. Organic-sourced sugar is produced using a technique that does not interfere with the higher nutritional profile of the sugarcane juice. The sustainable and innovative extraction process retains the sugar cane’s natural trace nutrients (calcium, iron, chromium, magnesium, selenium, potassium, and vitamin B6), producing a healthier and delicious-tasting sugar. This results in organically produced sugar having many health benefits compared to its non-organic counterparts. The online price of sugar grown without chemical pesticides and fertilisers varies depending on its quantity (kg/gms), variety (powdered or whole), etc.

Is organic sugar good for health?

When consumed in controlled portions, organic sugar is a healthier alternative for most people, excluding people with diabetes and those on a weight-loss program. Naturally produced and processed sugar is a rich source of polyphenols, powerful phytonutrients exhibiting antioxidant properties. It also contains vitamins B6 and C and calcium, potassium, and magnesium minerals. Additionally, organically produced sugar is power-packed with essential amino acids such as pipecolic acid, methionine, tryptophan, β-alanine, and arginine that aids in burning fat and building muscle. Sugar processed naturally contains easily digestible carbohydrates, aids metabolism, decreases stress hormone activity, and promotes good health.

What are the benefits of organic sugar?

Free from Pesticides Sugarcane exhibits high vulnerability to parasitic attacks by termites, grasshoppers, whiteflies, etc. Red rot, smut, and weeds can reduce sugarcane yield and interfere with extraction. As a result, several farmers spray their crops with dangerous, toxic pesticides, chemicals, and weedicides to prevent parasitic invasion. However, these chemicals may seep into the sugarcane juice and eventually mix in the sugar produced from the sugarcane. Sugar cane cultivation using organic methods involves using organic manure crops, weed management through manual intervention, intercropping, etc., and avoiding synthetic chemicals. Hence, sugar produced from sugarcane grown organically and sustainably ensures you get sugar that’s safe for consumption and retains its nutritional profile. Enhanced Flavour Profile In addition to having great health benefits, organically produced sugar also has an enhanced flavour and aroma. Since regular refined sugar undergoes several steps of refining and processing using chemicals such as sulphur dioxide, calcium hydroxide, phosphoric acid, etc., it loses its prominent molasses aroma. Conversely, sugar extracted from organically grown sugarcane can retain its original flavours as some molasses remain intact. This molasses content also lends the sugar its characteristic caramelised texture, making it perfect for baking. Treatment of Diseases Since ancient times, traditional medicine systems such as Unani and Ayurveda have considered sugarcane juice to have several therapeutic properties. However, processing it undermines these healthy qualities. The best alternative to raw sugarcane juice is organically made sugar. It is a rich source of carbohydrates and iron and can effectively treat febrile disorders, fever, fatigue, anaemia, inflammatory diseases, ulcers, and intestinal issues. Furthermore, the oligosaccharides in sugar boost immunity and provide sufficient amounts of antioxidants to the body.

Can organic sugar be eaten daily?

Eating any sweetener daily is not recommended, as it may increase blood sugar and the risk of diabetes. Over the past few years, consumers have become more health conscious. Owing to this health awareness, wholesome sweeteners such as organic and unrefined sugar have become popular cooking additives. While organic raw sugar differs significantly from refined sugar in terms of nutritional value, it's still recommended to monitor and limit your intake of either type of sugar as a part of healthy eating. Thus, one should use better-quality sugar rather than think of ways to stop consuming sugar.

What is the difference between natural and organic sugar?

Natural sugar refers to naturally occurring sugar in food. Some examples of naturally occurring sugars are lactose in milk and fructose in fruit. Natural sugars can be found in some quantity in any food item that contains milk (such as yoghurt or milk) or fruit (fresh or dried). Contrarily, khandsari or organic sugar, is unrefined sugar derived from sugar cane that has not been exposed to chemicals that cause cancer and damage the environment. Moreover, organically processed raw sugar has a rich flavour, colour, and aroma.
