Evaporated cane juice?

Nashville has finally arrived! We have a Trader Joe's. I went to Trader Joe's recently and bought some good stuff at good prices. One of the things I purchased was Sunflower Seed Butter. The ingredients in Sunflower Seed Butter are sunflower seeds, evaporated cane juice, and salt. Evaporated cane juice? Isn't that sugar?

  1. "Evaporated cane juice"??!! Okay upon reading this I *had* to google(TM) it ... turns out it's slightly different from regular granulated sugar, because it goes through a different process than what we know as sugar.

    here's an interesting read on the subject.


  2. p/s: bottom line though - same thing, marketed as something healthier and more natural. *rip off!*

  3. I think it's ridiculous too, since tis essentially the same thing.
