Day 58-Nutritional Bite

Evaporated Cane Juice
Evaporated cane juice refers to the boiled and extracted liquid of sugar cane stalks which is dried and crystallized naturally. This involves a chemical-free process comprising fewer steps than white cane sugar, allowing more of the sugar canes' natural ingredients to remain. Lime (calcium phosphate) is used as a catalyst to separate impurities in the freshly squeezed cane juice. The fine, golden crystals have a faint molasses flavor, dissolve well, and resemble the taste and delicate texture of white table sugar.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
The other day, I tried some ice cream with evaporated cane juice which is a white sugar substitute. The vanilla soy ice cream was tasty, especially with the addition of strawberries and bananas.
