Ah, the sweet taste of Rapadura Sugar
Rapadura is my saviour! Well, not really. I had kicked my sweet tooth a while ago, but hey we have sweet receptors on our tongue for a reason, so I was missing out on putting them to good use. Enter Rapadura.
In a nutshell Rapadura is dehydrated sugar cane juice. This means it hasn't been through the evils of processing and it has retained it's lovely nutrients. It contains trace levels of B Vitamins and Vitamin A along with calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorous. What this means to your precious cells is that they will actually know what to do with this sugar when it enters your body.
Refined sugar is devoid of all nutrients and robs precious nutrition from your body in order to get it where it needs to go. Rapadura doesn't, it has its own nutrients and doesn't need to steal any. Rapadura won't spike your blood sugar levels like refined sugar either. However, it is still sugar guys, so don't go and eat a whole pack a day.
Here in Hamilton you can find Rapadura at Village Organics in Frankton.
