Your Guide to Fair Trade Baking

Christmas is just days away. Not only are we busy shopping and gathering our last minute gifts, but busy baking in our kitchens. Why not make your baking Fair Trade? Check out Wholesome Sweeters for their excellent Organic Fair Trade Certified Products.

Organic Sugar is made from certified organic sugar cane grown in South America.  The cane juice, rich in molasses, vitamins and minerals, is extracted, clarified, evaporated and crystallized.  The result is a blonde-colored, delicious and natural organic sugar that will enhance all your favorite recipes.  Use as a one-for-one replacement for refined white sugar.

Organic Turbinado Sugar is made by crushing the freshly-cut sugar cane to squeeze out the juice, rich in, vitamins and minerals. The cane juice is evaporated and spun in a centrifuge, or turbine, to produce the large sparkling golden crystals.

Organic Light Corn Syrup with organic vanilla perfectly kicks up the traditional corn syrup recipe. Besides an incomparable flavor and smooth texture, it’s the ONLY organic alternative to the highly processed, synthetic, conventional GMO corn syrups (it is not a high-fructose corn syrup).

Organic Molasses is actually the end product, or by-product, of the production of [their] Organic Sugar.  It is loaded with vitamins, minerals and trace elements naturally present in the sugar cane plant and is a good source of iron, vitamin B6, potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Organic Powdered Sugar is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane, grown and produces without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or chemicals. [Their] powdered sugar is made by simply grinding [their] Fair Trade Certified Organic Sugar to a fine, creamy powder (12x) and adding 3% organic cornstarch or tapioca to prevent caking.

Certified Organic Dark Brown or Light Brown Sugar is soft, moist and fine-grained.  It is perfect for all your baking needs and especially good in cakes, cookies and sauces.
