Sucanat is an organic, unrefined cane sugar that has not had its molasses removed, unlike refined white sugar. Light brown in color, Sucanat has a grainy texture and has a taste similar to brown sugar. It has small amounts of iron, calcium, potassium, chormium and vitamins A and C. You can use Sucanat in your muffin recipe as you would regular cane sugar, although your muffins will have a light molasses flavor.
