The demeter raw cane sugar used to make icing sugar comes from a smallfarmers' cooperative in Paraguay.
Processing takes place in a special sugar mill in Germany. Here, it is ground very finely which gives it its light colour

Raw cane sugar is cultivated by farmers working organically in Brazil or also India. The climatic conditions in South and Central America and India are ideal for the cultivation of sugar cane. Since sugar cane has to be processed immediately after harvesting, Naturata sources its raw material from the region with sugar mills capable of producing the relevant sugar type. After harvesting, the sugar cane is stripped of leaves, chopped, crushed several times between simple rollers and the juice extracted. The plant fibre is filtered off. After cleaning, the juice is merely thickened in a vacuum at low temperature. A few unrefined sugar crystals are added to the heavily concentrated juice, so that the sugar crystallises out. When the sugar crystals attain a certain size, they are centrifuged from the rest of the concentrated juice, dried, sieved and packaged. The molasses content is therefore lower than in SUCANAT whole cane sugar. The smaller crystals and paler colour in comparison with DEMERARA are due to longer processing. Raw cane sugar is ground finely to make icing sugar.
Tips for preparation
Icing sugar is ideal for sprinkling on desserts, cakes and biscuits, for icing and sponge cake bases.
