Organic Cane sugar! Organic–Argentina

Sugarcane or sugar cane is a species of (often hybrid) tall, perennial grass (in the genus Saccharum, tribe Andropogoneae) that is used for sugar production. The plants are 2–6 m (6–20 ft) tall with stout, jointed, fibrous stalks that are rich in sucrose, which accumulates in the stalk internodes. Sugarcanes belong to the grass family, Poaceae, an economically important flowering plant family that includes maize, wheat, rice, and sorghum, and many forage crops. It is native to the warm temperate and tropical regions of India, Southeast Asia, and New Guinea.

Cane sugar encompases a wide range of sugars, all of which are made from sugar cane, a plant similar to bamboo which grows in tropical climates. Cane sugar is made by chopping up the sugar cane, extracting its juice, boiling the liquid to produce a dark syrup, which is essentially unrefined molasses, and then crystallizing it. The crystallized syrup is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the crystals from the molasses.

There are three main types of cane sugars: unrefined, raw and refined. These sugars differ in how they are processed, and the processing itself is mainly a function of washing the sugar to remove some, most or all of the molasses and other impurities.
