When the folks at Zulka emailed me to see if I wanted to try the sugar, I researched what it was and when I saw it was Non-Gmo I said ” absolutely!”. I always bake/cook with organic sugar aka evaporated cane juice. Its a bigger granule than regular refined white sugar, and more caramel in color. Zulka is just like that. It has a very caramelly taste ( YUM!) and worked beautifully in this ice cream recipe. It dissolved quickly and really added a nice flavor to this ice cream.

Zulka delivers a better tasting and less processed cup-for-cup replacement for refined sugar, and people are noticing! Check out what they are saying and how they are using Zulka Pure Cane Sugar:
I tried some recipes with Zulka, and I loved its texture and light brown color. It has a crystal look that works great for rolling cookies in it. I also liked its taste; it tastes more natural, more like sugar cane than processed white sugar, I thought when I first tasted it.
I made mine with Zulka Cane Sugar from Mexico (seemed appropriate for cajeta right?) but I love this sugar for so many things…especially my morning coffee; it’s a small but for me significant change and I’m certain it was the perfect choice for this homemade cajeta.
Zulka’s Morena sugar is never refined, NON GMO, which provide fresh, real flavor and the natural properties of the sugar cane plant. The sugar has an exact 1:1 cup replacement for regular white sugar, and you can use it to replace sugar in anything including your coffee, baking, cocktails, glazes and more.
Zulka Pure Cane Sugar, which is better tasting and minimally processed. You can use Zulka cup-for-cup for refined white sugar. Zulka is unrefined, non-GMO verified Morena sugar, made from fresh-harvested sugar cane.

“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
“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
“This is now my main sugar in the house. Good bye C&H!” – Paulette
“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
“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
“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
“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 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
“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
“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
“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
“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 recently purchased your sugar when I saw the ‘Non GMO’ label!”
“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
“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
