What kind of sugar is Zulka?
Zulka sugar is a type of “real” sugar made from fresh sugar cane. It’s sort of like a cross between sugar in the raw (turbinado) and white granulated sugar, although it’s closer to the white sugar you’re used to seeing. It’s a healthier sugar of choice and is perfect for baking, cooking, and using in place of granulated sugar.
