Originally, Evaporated Cane Juice or Syrup was coined by Wholesome Sweeteners many years ago to define sugar that is not bleached (the final step of sugar production), but uses all of the other steps commonly used to produce sugar. It has since become an abused term that means nothing....most companies are using sugar and calling it ECJ. Because of this, there are several lawsuits to stop the use of this term against several companies.

Evaporated cane juice is a blond, fine-grained sugar. Turbinado is actually something different. Wholesome sweeteners sells evaporated cane juice sugar, and I know Whole Foods carries it. But you can just use granulated sugar instead.

In your local grocery store it's a bob's mills product, usually they have their own section in a store. You can use palm sugar as a sub shave it with a microplane
