The National Drink of Pakistan……………..

Sugarcane juice is the liquid extracted from pressed Sugarcane. It is consumed as a beverage in many places, especially where sugarcane is commercially grown such as Southeast Asia the Indian Subcontinent, North Africa and Latin America “Evaporated cane juice”, as an ingredient in prepared food, is a misleading way of saying “sugar”.

Sugarcane juice is obtained by crushing peeled sugar cane in a mill and is one of the main precursors of Rum.

Health risks

Raw sugar cane juice can be a Health Risk to drinkers due to the unhygienic conditions under which it is prepared in some countries with lower health standards. There are some diseases that can be transmitted by raw sugar-cane, such as Leptospirosis. In Brazil, sugarcane juice has been linked to cases of Chagas Disease, as sugarcane can contain traces of its responsible pathogen, Trypanosoma Cruzi, left by infected bugs if not properly cleaned.

Evaporated cane juice

Evaporated cane juice is a misleading term for “sugar”. Sugar can include Glucose or Fructose. Sugar is a partially purified sugar syrup, produced from a single-crystallization process during sugar cane milling.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines evaporated cane juice as any sweetener derived from sugarcane syrup. The US FDA considers the term “evaporated cane juice” to be misleading because the term incorrectly suggests that it is a juice, when it is sugar syrup. Instead, the US FDA recommends using “sugar cane syrup” or “dried cane syrup” on food labels.
