Can anyone recommend an organic sugar that has a neutral aroma? I have tried several organic sugars available in the US and they have all had a fairly strong molasses, anise type aroma. I want the beans in my chocolate to provide the flavor and aroma, not the sugar.
As you discovered it is difficult to find a clean organic sugar. The refining process that completely removes all traces of molasses requires the use of chemicals so the final product can no longer be considered organic, even if the manufacturer started with organic materials. This discussion mentions that the most neutral product could be organic beet sugar which is only available in Europe. This discussion mentions dextrose made from tapioca as a potential option.
many thanks. I'll investigate sources for the organic beet sugar,
