Muscovado Sugar

Muscovado Sugar

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)


Muscovado sugar takes its name from the spanish 'mascabado' (meaning unrefined). Also known as Barbados sugar. This sugar is pure, wholesome, unrefined, natural cane sugar. It is also called 'poor man's sugar'. Muscovado sugar retains all of the natural ingredients of sugar cane, making it wholesome and healthy.
Only a pure natural honey can compare to muscovado's nutritive value. One important reason why muscovado is becoming popular today is because, it's low calorie content as compared to white sugar/

Nutrient value

Compared to normal white sugar, muscovado sugar retains all the cane sugar nutrients. High in minerals: potassium, calcium, iron, it has more health benefits compared to normal white sugar, which has zero nutrients, as the refining process to produce white sugar has practically eliminated all traces of nutrients from it.

Mineral content of Muscovado Sugar (per 100g):

  • Total mineral salts 740 mg max.
  • Phosphorus (P) 3.9 mg max.
  • Calcium (Ca) 85 mg max.
  • Magnesium (Mg) 23 mg max.
  • Potassium (K) 100 mg max.
  • Iron (Fe) 1.3 mg max
  • Low Calories compared to White Sugar

The nutritional content of white sugar is stripped away during the refining process, resulting in an 'empty-calorie' product that contains nothing of nutritional benefit. A 1998 study published in the "Journal of the American Dietetic Association" found that nearly 40 percent of the total calories consumed by those aged 2 to 18 come from 'empty-calorie' snacks. Replacing your usual white sugar with muscovado sugar at home can help lower the amount of 'empty calories' you and your family consume.

Fewer Chemicals compared to White Sugar

The extraction process of muscovado sugar is very simple; the extracted juice from the sugar cane is boiled until it has reduced to about 30 percent. The residue is then dried out and it solidifies to form the sugar granules known as muscovado sugar. In comparison, white sugar undergoes additional heating, filtering and bleaching stages, which removes most of its nutritional content in the process. Another health benefit muscovado sugar has over refined sugar is that it is free of harmful chemicals such as phosphoric acid, sulfur dioxide and formic acid, which may be put in during the additional stages white sugar goes through.

This unrefined sugar goes well with coffee and other beverages, and was one of the most prominent export commodities of the Philippines, from the 19th century until the late 1970s. The production of muscovado sugar in the Philippines, Barbados, and elsewhere had experienced a long period of decline when large mills took over sugar production from small farmers with small mills, until consumer interest in healthy and organic foods revived interest in muscovado sugar, creating a new market for muscovado sugar production from small mills.

For maximum health benefits, try baking carrot cakes, oat and raisin cookies, fruity muffins, apple and cinnamon crumbles and apple strudels. You can also use muscovado sugar in savory dishes such as mustard-glazed gammon, caramelized balsamic steak, pork and bean stew, cheddar, rosemary and onion tarts and a variety of breads.

Benefits of Coconut

Helps Prevent Obesity by speeding up metabolism, providing an immediate source of energy with fewer calories than other fats. People who consistently use coconut products, report a stronger ability to go without eating for several hours with no affects of hypoglycemia.

Improves Heart Health by providing healthy short chain and medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) that are essential to good coconut health. Close to 98% of all fatty acids consumed are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA), which are very different from MCFA that have no negative effect on cholesterol ratios and help to lower the risk of atherosclerosis and protect against heart disease. Studies have shown that populations in Polynesia and Sri Lanka, where coconuts are a dietary staple, do not suffer from high serum cholesterol or heart disease. Unlike other fats, the unique properties of coconut also contain a large amount of lauric acid, which is the predominant fatty acid found in mother's milk.

High in Dietary Fiber rivaling other fiber sources such as psyllium, wheat bran, oat bran, and rice bran. Coconut supplies an impressive 61% dietary fiber! Foods contain two types of carbohydrates - digestible and non-digestible. Digestible carbohydrates (soluble fiber) consists of starch and sugar and promote calories. Non-digestible carbohydrates (insoluble fiber) contains NO calories. Since the body cannot digest the dietary fiber in coconut, no calories are derived from it and it has no effect on blood sugar.

Low Glycemic Index (GI) measures how fast available carbohydrates in food raise blood sugar levels. Coconut fiber slows down the release of glucose, therefore requiring less insulin to utilize the glucose and transport it into the cell where it is converted into energy. Coconut also assists in relieving stress on the pancreas and enzyme systems of the body, in turn, reducing the risks associated with Diabetes. Coconut Nectar and Crystals have a very low GI of only 35 (compared to honey with a GI of 55-83, and sugar with a GI of 65-100.)

Reduces Sweet Cravings and improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose. The healthy fat in coconut slows down any rise in blood sugar and helps to reduce hypoglycemic cravings.

Improves Digestion and many of the symptoms and inflammatory conditions associated with digestive and bowel disorders, by supporting absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids while also providing beneficial dietary fiber.

Quick Energy Boost that provides a super nutritious source of extra energy. Coconut is utilized by the body to actually produce energy, rather than to store it as body fat. It supports improved endurance during physical and athletic performance. As well, it promotes healthy thyroid function and helps to relieve the symptoms of chronic fatigue.

In addition, coconut contains No Trans-Fats, is Gluten-Free, Non-Toxic, Hypo-allergenic, and also contains Antibacterial, Antiviral, Anti-fungal, and Anti-parasitic healing properties. Coconut helps to aid and support overall Immune System functions.

Benefits of Rice Flours

Rice flour (also rice powder) is a form of flour made from finely milled rice. It is distinct from rice starch, which is usually produced by steeping rice in lye. Rice flour is a particularly good substitute for wheat flour, which causes irritation in the digestive systems of those who are gluten-intolerant. Rice flour is also used as a thickening agent in recipes that are refrigerated or frozen since it inhibits liquid separation.
