Wholesome Fair Trade Organic Powdered Sugar is made from 100% certified organic sugar cane, grown and produced without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemicals. Our powdered sugar is made by simply grinding our Fair Trade Organic Sugar to a fine, fluffy powder (12x) and adding a bit of organic tapioca to prevent clumping. When making simple icing with water,the organic powdered sugar gives a faint golden color and delectable mellow toffee flavor derived from the natural molasses retained in the unrefined, unbleached organic sugar. It is perfect for cookies, frosting, fillings, dusting, and baking. It is naturally gluten-free, vegan, and kosher and should be usedas a one-for-one replacement for refined powdered sugar. Try dusting whole grain waffles, french toast, or stuffed crepes with a bit of Organic Powdered Sugar for a special breakfast treat. Unlike refined white powdered sugar with its overpowering, chalky sweetness, Wholesome Fair Trade Organic Powdered Sugar retains a bit of the cane’s natural molasses to give a smooth, mellow and rounded flavor. Many bakers and parents like that this organic powdered sugar is corn-free too. Our sugar is blended with organic tapioca rather than gmo cornstarch! No chemicals, bone char, or animal by-products are used to make or de-colorize this sugar making it ideal for vegans. The Fair Trade Certified logo is Wholesome’s guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane grown and milled. This means that farmers can compete with factory farms, cultivate the quality of their crops, send their kids to school and build thriving communities. Thank you for choosing Wholesome!

Fair Trade Certification is a promise that:
Farmers cooperatives are paid directly (no middlemen).
The members receive a fair and reliable set price for their crops.
The cooperative has access to loans and additional premiums for community and business development.
Its trade, not aid. Cooperatives decide how the money is invested; the only stipulation is that every member has a vote in how the inves™ent is made.
Social Responsibility The Fair Trade Certified™ logo represents Wholesome's commi™ent to consumers that a fair premium price is paid to the farmers cooperatives that supply Wholesomes Fair Trade products.
Since initiating the Fair Trade Certified program in 2005, Wholesome Sweeteners has paid more than $800,000 directly to Fair Trade cooperative partners in Costa Rica, Malawi, Mexico and Paraguay. Fair Trade means that farmers can send their kids to school, keep their land, develop the quality of their harvest and build thriving communities.
Beyond the parameters of Fair Trade Certification, Wholesome selects suppliers based on a demonstrated commi™ent to social responsibility and community outreach.
Environmental Responsibility Wholesome Sweeteners' ethos is shaped by a deep concern for the long-term health of the planet and all of its inhabitants.
The USDA Organic logo is Wholesome's promise that we hold every product to the highest environmental standard. Each product bearing the USDA Organic logo has been grown and milled to USDA Organic standards, without the aid of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or chemicals.
Wholesome uses traditional methods:
Fair Trade certification includes a commitment to sustainable agriculture. In recent years, unprecedented acreage has been converted from conventional agriculture to organic cultivation, reducing exposure to pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
From the seed stock to harvest, our sugar cane is cultivated and harvested by hand and grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
Wholesomes cane fields are never burned. During the harvest, trimmings are allowed to stay where they fall, decomposing naturally, returning nutrients to the soil, helping protect topsoil and ground water and providing habitat for wildlife.
At the small mills in Costa Rica, Malawi and Paraguay, our sweeteners are made simply and the spent sugar cane, called bagasse, is often recycled as fuel to generate electricity for the mill and nearby villages.
Deep in Southern Mexicos jungles, honeybees browse on lush wildflowers without exposure to antibiotics or chemicals.
