Is Florida Crystals®' natural sugar safe for diabetics?
Florida Crystals® Natural Sugar is metabolized in the body in the same manner as regular sugar. Diabetics should treat Florida Crystals® products the same as white sugar. Talk to your physician about alternative sweeteners for your diet.
What’s the difference between Florida Crystals®' natural sugar, white sugar and brown sugar?
Florida Crystals® Natural Sugar's unique color and flavor comes from the original sugar cane juice that naturally occurs in the crystals. White sugar is almost 100% sucrose, whereas Florida Crystals® Natural Sugar contains trace nutrients from the sugar cane plant. Some nutritionists believe that these very small amounts of nutrients contribute to the advantages Florida Crystals® Natural Sugar has over refined white sugar. Brown sugar is made by adding coloring and flavor back to the processed sugar. No additives, preservatives, or artificial ingredients are added to our products – just natural sweetness to enhance your favorite foods.
How should I use Florida Crystals®?
Florida Crystals® Natural Sugar can be used just like ordinary white sugar and in the same amount. It will add a natural depth of flavor to your favorite beverages and recipes.
