Piloncillo or Panela is unrefined whole cane sugar which derived from the boiling and evaporation of sugarcane juice. Unlike other piloncillo, ours comes exclusively from the highest quality Colombian plantations and we do not add any white sugar or colorants. It is raw sugar in its purest form.
Piloncillo is widely used throughout Latin America in the canning of foods, confectionery, drinks, baking, wine making, and the making of vinegar. The famous Colombian biking team drinks a liquid piloncillo to keep up their energy. With minerals such as magnesium and iron, it makes the perfect sports drink.
It has a flavor similar to brown sugar with hints of molasses, although it does not contain molasses. It can be used in any recipe in place of brown sugar.
