What is Sucanat?

I am trying to make a strawberry rhubarb pie and I found this recipe on the internet. I don't know what succanant is. Is it some kind of sugar substitute? Is it more healthy for you? Because I really dont like sugar that much and would appreciate a substitute. Have and ideas?
from the recipe...
1 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar or succanat

Probably you couldn't find the info because the correct spelling is "sucanat" with only one C. It is a natural substitute to brown sugar or molasses, from what I have read. I found a few links to infos about this product...

I had personally never heard of it but now I saw some info, seems like an interesting item to try!!

It looks like it's unrefined cane sugar.
