Brief History of Mascobado Sugar
Items for Sale Top
Small sugarcane growers in Negros are struggling to become self-reliant. Their sugarcane, which is grown largely organically, is squeezed, boiled down, stirred and dried to make powdered dark sugar. In Negros this process is called "Mascobado." Since no refining is included in the process, the sugar contains molasses and retains the flavor of the sugarcane and minerals. The sugar is sweet and tasty and at the same time is very light. It enhances any type of cooking by making food more tasty.
