Product of Peru

The cane juice is filtered, clarified, and the water is evaporated at low temperatures. The juice is left to dry at the same time as crystalizing. As a result, we obtain a dark coloured mass. This is panela sugar and can be consumed as it is or it can go through a grinding process (granulation) to obtain the rapadura form.. cane sugar juice
