Unlike other sugar, Rapadura sugar is never separated from its molasses content, thus it retains all the vitamins and minerals available from sugar cane. Rapadura is the whole, unrefined evaporated sugar cane juice and is processed naturally free from any harmful chemicals such as phosphoric acid, formic acid, sulphur dioxide, preservatives, or any flocculants, surfactants, bleaching agents or viscosity modifiers. It is nutritionally rich and retains all natural mineral and vitamin content present inherent in sugar cane juice.
