I believe it is considered clean. It is a common ingredient in most Kashi products which Tosca actually says she uses. That being said it is still pretty much unrefined sugar. I would focus on choosing a product that still has low overall sugar if it includes that ingredient and try to limit your consumption since it spikes your blood sugar and of course has lots of calories.
I think any sugar is processed and probably not clean in a strict sense. I would say it is probably cleaner than other forms but I believe Tosca recommends avoiding all forms of sugar. I have bought products with organic cane juice but only on a limited basis.
I know that "organic" doesn't always mean non-gmo, and sugar is one of the more likely gmo crops, but I think sugar cane is okay (I'm pretty sure it's the beets that are more troublesome). So, I think this cereal sounds pretty clean to me. What kind is it, and where do you get it? Is it tasty?
I'm just saying... Kelley

Organic Evaporated Sugar Cane Juice (OESCJ), Clean or not clean? I bought some whole, multigrain cereals that taste really good. They have a great distribution of nutrients, but the is OESCJ. It is at the bottom of the the ingredient list and there are 4g of sugar per serving.
