Sublime Sugar

At Sublime Bakery we use the finest ingredients available to us. Our buttercream is made with European-style Plugra butter, not shortening. Our chocolate is Swiss Callebaut and our vanilla is the real deal, not imitation. You won't find one single grain of processed white sugar in our kitchen. Instead we use organic cane sugar made by Wholesome Sweeteners in all of our bakery items. I sing the praises of this product every chance I get. It is absolutely brilliant! Made from evaporated cane juice, it contains no chemicals, no pesticides, and it has not been bleached. Did you know that white sugar is actually BLEACHED?? Ugh!
Our sugar is organic, kosher, and it's not filtered through animal by-products so it's ideal for vegan, vegetarian and plant based diets. Obviously this type of sugar tastes better and is better for your body than traditional white sugar but Wholesome Sweeteners sugar is actually good for humanity and for the planet. Check out this info straight from the bag:
"The Fair Trade label guarantees the consumer a fair price is paid directly to the farmer for the sugar cane they grow. Returning real value to the primary agricultural producers means they can compete with factory farms whilst protecting sustainable farming practices. It also means they can enjoy higher living standards and develop thriving communities. Our Organic Sugar is produced from certified organic sugar cane grown on a co-operative of sustainable family farms in Paraguay. The Sugar Mill is energy self-sufficient- we use the crushed cane stalks, called bagasse, as fuel for the boilers which generates the electricity for the mill, so we do not need to use any fossil fuels. We "green cut" the cane- which means that we do not burn or spray the fields and the sugar is cut by hand. The leaves and tops of the cane plant are left in the field as a nutrient source for the soil and as a natural form of weed control."
OK, so I'm done preaching. Go out and buy this sugar!!
