Sugar cane juice prices increase amid shortage in Malaysia
Your sugar cane juice fix may be getting more expensive.
A check with sellers showed that some have upped $0.20 for a cup of the popular drink, while others held prices firm but are absorbing the rising cost of sugar cane.
Hawkers said suppliers are charging between S$4 and S$7 more for each box containing 20kg of sugar cane.
Sugarcane is full of goodness.
An 8oz cup of sugancane juice holds the daily requirement of soluble fibre for an adult for the day. The complex sugar will slowly go into our body instead of spiking the blood and keeps us full for a few hours.
