Panela (agua de)
Panela (agua de) drink
© viajala.com
Colombia Highly calorific and surprisingly refreshing drink. To prepare this drink you just have to dissolve panela sticks in water. The beverage can be made hot with milk, or cold with water, lemon or lime. Panela, available in exotic food groceries, is mass-produced : the cane sugar juice is cooked at high temperature to form a rather dense molasses which is then poured into pans where it hardens to form the panela.
Unlike white sugar (which is essentially saccharose), brown sugar (like panela) is considered as health food, containing high levels of glucose, fructose, proteins, minerals (calcium, iron, copper, phosphorus), vitamin C and B complex. Popular medecine prescribe this drink to cure colds because it is rich in rehydrating minerals (like american Gatorate used by athletes). Wikipedia.
