Production process of the panela
First, the sugar cane is hauled to the module with trucks or mules.

Milling: the juice of the sugar cane is extracted, obtaining the raw juice which will be used as a raw material for the production of Granulated Panela. The bagasse, or sugar cane husks, is dried to be used as a source of energy for the oven.

Filtering and clarification: The raw juice passes through a cold filtration using filter-clarifiers, which eliminate large particles (bagacilla) and remnants of the sugar cane.

Juice storage: The clarified and filtered juice is collected in a recipient of stainless steel from which the juice will begin the process.

Cleaning and clarification: When the juice reaches 40 to 60 0C (104 to 140 0F) , a pH regulator is added which adjusts the pH of the juice from 5.2 to 6.8; this process permits the creation of thin layers called cachaza that are removed with instruments called descachazadores.

Juice evaporation: Once cleaned and clarified, the juice passes to a evaporation recipient where the temperature reaches 98  99 0C (208 to 210 0F) . Also during this stage the thin and white cachaza are eliminated. The juice is concentrated as the water evaporates.

Juice concentration: The juice is passed through concentration recipients where they become thick and molasses-like. Once the juices are concentrated enough, the thickened juice reaches a precise point of concentration to obtain the ecological sugar, this point is from 124 to 130 0C (255 to 266 0F) .

Crystallization: When the thickened juice reaches the point, it passes to a stainless steel recipient where the crystallization of the sugar occurs, thanks to continuous mixing with large wooden spatulas.

Cooling: Once crystallized, the sugar is cooled for half an hour to avoid compaction.

Sifting: The ecological sugar passes trough a stainless steel sieve with holes of 2 millimeters, the grains large than this will be reprocessed (added into the evaporation recipient) .

Once sifted, the various batches of sugar are blended in a stainless steal recipient with a capacity of 2000 kilos, in order to obtain a uniform color and texture

The panela is packaged first in polyethylene bags and then in a polypropylene bag, weighed, and sent to the homogenization and packaging plant located in Piura.
