Panela is a natural, old-world sweetener of evaporated raw sugarcane juice. Made in Colombia today using time-honored and sustainable methods, it is a delicious and versatile ingredient you’ll reach for again and again.
Due to its unrefined nature, panela has a lower glycemic index and the presence of essential trace minerals such as iron. Typically sold in bricks, our organic panela has been ground into an easy-to-scoop powder and can be used in the same manner as white or turbinado sugar.
Handmade product of Colombia.
Suggestions for Use:
With a rich, caramel flavor, panela makes a delicious addition to coffee, tea, or anything where a bit of sweetness is desired. Can be used as a 1-to-1 substitute for granulated sugar if desired.
