Panela Monitor

Panela Monitor is the global entry point for scientific, economic, and commercial information on panela

, the non-centrifugal sugar also known as jaggery (South Asia and Africa), muscovado (Philippines), and kokuto (Japan), among many other names.

We aim at promoting the consumption and use of panela by overcoming its lack of recognition as a discrete product because of the names used in different countries and the confusion between non-centrifugal sugar and other partially refined sugars, such as turbinado, or refined sugars mixed with molasses (brown sugar).

We believe that the reversal of the historical decline of panela as a significant food will have important global health, environmental and development effects.
