Labels are deceptive.
I was in the grocery store yesterday — in the sugar aisle. Of 5 products claiming to be natural, raw sugar, exactly ZERO actually were!
Now, I know we’re supposed to avoiding sweeteners altogether. When I get a hankerin’ for sweets, I usually grab a fruit or — I kid you not — a glass of whole raw milk.
But, sometimes you may want to make something sweet as a special treat. It’s the holidays. It’s your kid’s birthday. You got promoted. You need comfort.
When those days strike, it’s best to use natural, unrefined sweeteners to fill the gap. Things like honey, maple syrup, or raw sugar.
Want to test your raw sugar spotting abilities? Check out the photos below and tell me which one’s really and truly unrefined, raw sugar.
Will the Real Raw Sugar Please Stand Up?
Each of the sugars below is advertised as natural, raw sugar.
Figured it out yet?
