NOTE: Rapadura is the name for dehydrated sugar cane juice. In the United States it is sometimes called “organic whole cane sugar.” It is a type of unrefined sugar available in health and natural food stores and while it is not a sugar substitute (because it is a sugar, itself), it is healthier to consume than refined sugar or corn syrup. To produce rapadura, pure juice is extracted from sugar cane and evaporated over a low heat while being stirred. This process results in a hard block of unrefined sugar.
