New Year, New You!

From cereal to cane sugar to salads, in 2013 I reviewed some great, and well, not so great, products. Let’s take a look back and check out some of the highlights:

With a score of 97, was Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar. With a slight honey flavor this pure cane sugar is made by squeezing the sugar cane and evaporating the juice.  Put away the artificial sweeteners, with one packet at just 16 calories, this cane sugar is all you’ll need.

Oh Sugar!

Several years ago, when I was writing The Sugar BIble for Food Arts Magazine, I obtained many different varieties of sugar….Recently, however, I came across a beautiful sparkling sugar: Zulka Morena sugar. Morena is a description of  granulated sugar that has not been processed with conventional sugar refining methods such as filtering through bone char.

Easy Does It: Apple Pie

I used more of my Zulka Sugar sample when I made this recipe. I have really been impressed with the quality of this product!  It’s important for me to try to keep genetically modified anything out of my cupboards and food whenever I can, and Zulka does just that without sacrificing the true sugar flavor – even enhancing it!

I had received a bag of GMO-free Zulka pure cane sugar to try and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. Zulka retains its natural color, kind of a sandy white. The darker undertones make it sparkle more than an ordinary cup of white sugar, it’s quite pretty. The taste is slightly different, too, similar to a subtle maple syrup flavoring. When I tromped around Eladio Pop’s cacao farm in the rainforest of Belize, he hacked down some sugar cane for us to suck on and this is what Zulka sugar tastes like.

Natural, Pure, Cane Sugar


“Zulka is the best thing you’ll hear about all day! Zulka is a Pure Cane Sugar company that is a Non-GMO Project verified “Morena” sugar. (This is a term used to describe granulated sugars that do not undergo conventional refining process.) Which means: its full of flavor and perfect for everyday use. BEST THING YOU’VE HEARD TODAY RIGHT?” – Sugar Loco

“Their sugar is less refined than normal granulated sugar and has a better, sweeter flavor. It’s rich and tastes more like actual sugar cane. Which I love because it imparts an earthier flavor on the things you cook. Best part is that it’s cup for cup comparable to regular granulated sugar so you don’t have to make any special adjustments with your recipe. Bonus, this product is also non-GMO. Which again, I love.” – Culicurious

“Zulka Pure Cane Sugar is an all-natural, unrefined, granulated sugar. It is made from freshly- harvested sugar cane that is a better-tasting and less-processed cup-for-cup replacement for refined white sugar. The results are about as close to a pure sugar cane plant that you can get.” – Beyond Frosting

“I can honestly tell you it tastes real and so much better than granulated sugar.  This is what sugar is supposed to taste like, I immediately tasted the difference when I snuck my first piece of raw dough (come on I know you eat the dough too before baking)! Zulka is equivalent cup for cup to regular sugar, so no substitutions need to made, all you need to do is buy a bag and get baking!  Oh the best part?  Besides the taste that is – it’s a Non-GMO product, so it’s good for us and the environment.” – Girl in the Little Red Kitchen

“We have started buying your products and are very pleased with it! You are a fine example that a natural non-GMO product doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.” – Stephen

“I sure do love the sugar and I really love the fact that it is a Non-GMO Project Certified Product. Awesome! You have a new fan.” – Brandon

“Tasting Zulka sugar is seriously like tasting real sugar cane. I know, because in the Dominican Republic, a major producer of sugar cane, I’ve consumed my fair share of it in its natural state. And just as natural is Zulka Morena® Pure Sugar Cane Sugar, non-GMO and with naturally occurring caramel color tones in the granules. Unlike the typical granulated sugar that’s been striped to its’ core and is stark white, Zulka Morena®’s natural color isn’t just nice to look at but imparts great flavor to baked goods, my morning coffee, and savory dishes.” – Cooking with Books

“I just bought your 4 lb. bag of sugar at Wal-Mart the other day, and was shocked that the price was only $.10 more than the name brand sugar. So excited that is was Non-GMO, tastes great, and is affordable.” – Marcia

“Oh my gosh, I am in love with Zulka Pure Cane Morena Sugar! It’s completely revolutionary. I’ve been using it in everything, and all has turned out perfect (and tasting even better)!” – The Cooking Actress

“I loved using Zulka because it quickly dissolved and measured cup for cup, just like the refined granulated sugar I’m used to using. It also seemed to add a more complex flavor to my ice cream base, almost a caramel taste. Even tasting the Zulka alone I noticed that it tasted so much different from white sugar, in a very good way. I loved using it in this Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream and I think that it would seamlessly work in any recipe. I fully intend to continue using it in place of white sugar from here on out.”  – Food Babbles

“My family and I will be buying your sugar from now on and I will most certainly spread the word to buy your product!!!” – Tom

“I’ve been using your sugar since my mom introduced me to it over a year ago, and I have yet to find anything comparable or as affordable.” – Gloria

“I absolutely love this sugar and the fact that it’s gmo free!!!” – Brandy

“I just recently purchased your sugar when I saw the ‘Non GMO’ label!”

“This is now my main sugar in the house. Good bye C&H!” – Paulette

“I absolutely love your product. Tastes great, price is comparable to processed sugar and I have the comfort of knowing I am not giving my children GMO’s.” – Karen

“What is the best sugar you ask?  Well I am sure it differs from person to person, but to me the best sugar is one that is organic, GMO-free, and free from unnecessary processing, especially regarding the use of bone char. That sugar is Zulka Pure Cane Sugar… Zulka’s got me as a customer. I like to purchase from companies whose values align with my own.” – Produce on Parade

“Absolutely the BEST on the market!!!!! I tell everyone about it…and Non-GMO verified…Your Company ROCKS!” – Marleen

“What counts is the flavor. If you have ever chewed on sugar cane you will know exactly how this tastes. The subtle flavor is similar to caramel or molasses or a cross between the two…here is a new staple sugar in my pantry. I will use Morena for baking when I want the added pure cane sugar flavor. It is what will be in my sugar shaker.” – Magnolia Days
