Panela is the juice of the cane of sugar that,
by means of successive boils, it loses humidity and he/she concentrates
for to form a soft and ductile mass that solidifies when being cooled
down in blocks. To purify the fresh juice of the cane he/she leaves
it to him to decant.
The elaboration of The Panela is handmade
and it is free of all the chemical preservatives that are used in
the production of the sugar, the one which, to the subjected being
to the sulfatación, fading and filtration, lose the molasses, and
with her all the you leave minerals, amino acids and vitamins that
are present in the one juice of the cane and in the panela.
Differences among The Panela The Sugar Moscabado and The Refined Sugar
White or Refined Sugar
is constituted by chemically pure sucrose glasses; the appearances
of minerals that preserve is still considered as " sludges ". The
use of sugar refined in the modern feeding gives place to the calls
illnesses of the civilization or also lacking, among which occupy
a very important place the dental cavity
the process of refinement of the sugar finds an intermediate stage
in which the glasses are still accompanied by molasses, substance
that it contains some nutritional elements of the cane of sugar but
only appearances of some mineral salts, near 400mg in 100g. Although
their nutritious value is higher than that of the refined sugar, it
doesn't reach to fill the requirements of a diet balanced in minerals
the one complete juice of the gray-headed one of sugar has only been
evaporated the one it dilutes. All the vital elements of the plant
are this way in the panela.
The nutritional analysis of the panela gives us the following result:
80 sucrose% and enter 10% and 12% of fruitful and of glucose.
These last elements possess a high biological value and they are not
present neither in the sugar moscabado neither in him refined. The
content of salts minerals it is 5 times adult that in the moscabado
and 50 times but that in the refined one. Their concentration is of
1.5gr in 100gr. In the panela is remarkable quantities of potassium,
magnesium, calcium, manganese, copper and phosphates.
They are also appearances of fluorine and selenium. He/she is 1% of
proteins and a vast range of vitamins, especially the belonging ones
to the group B, as the B6, the folic acid, the pantotenato of calcium,
the inositol. the B2, the PP, the H. besides their high energy value
