Turbinado sugar, Vegan sugar

I was surprised to find out that bone char is used to refine sugar. I stopped using white sugar when , I came to know that animal bones are used to filter sugar. I make kheers(sweet pudding), halwas(indian sweets) and burfis(fudge like sweets) using trader joe's Turbinado raw cane sugar. I just adore the taste of the sweets made with Turbinado raw cane sugar. The cashew burfis made with this sugar get wonderful creamish color. A couple of days ago I made kaju katlis(cashew fudge). My husband and son loved it so much! I felt so happy when my son was munching these kaju katlis, as I had just used two ingredients to make kaju katlis. Try this sugar even if you are not a vegan. Turbinado sugar contains no coloring, no blending or any chemical refining. In short, Turbinado sugar is better for your health than white refined sugar.
