Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 6. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Organic Panela Sweetener

Panela is an unprocessed, organic cane sugar that can be used in place of brown or white sugar. Panela is hand cut, hand kettled, and hand crafted from the same regions of Columbia as Colombian coffee. Since it is unrefined and unprocessed, Panela sugar retains its vitamins, minerals and amino acids. In fact, Panela has more nutrients than any other natural sweetener.

Panela cane sugar retains its taste from the soil, climate, and region from where it grew. Turbinado, brown, and white sugars use chemicals and cattle bone char in their refinement process, which results in sugars that taste like chemicals. Panela is chemical free and has a pleasant, earthy taste. 

Panela maintains a more complex carbohydrate than turbinado and other refined sugars which results in healthier, slower metabolization. Panela has a glycemic index rating of 55, which is the same as molasses. Click here to see the GI rating of various sweeteners available at Pleasant Hill Grain

Baking with panela is easy because it can replace white or brown sugar. Panela is moist like brown sugar and is finely ground, so it dissolves easily. Because it dissolves so well, Panela is a great sweetener for coffee, tea and other beverages!  

Available in 1 and 5 lb. bags.

Panela is also known by the name piloncillo.

  • “Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn't bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed.”
