Potato starch
Sucanat, (SUgar CAne NATural) is a brand name for organically grown, dehydrated cane juice. The juice extraction processes are mechanical, and unlike typical sugar cane processing, no chemicals are added. Studies showing that raw cane juice, as compared to refined sugar solutions, is less likely to cause dental cavities have led to the supposition that the evaporated cane juice may also prove better for your teeth. The manufacturer makes no claims; however, the fact that the product is organic and contains no added chemicals still makes it superior to common granulated sugar. The average sugar content is 85%, with all of the complex sugars, minerals, and molasses retained.
