Demerara is a raw cane sugar often used in home baking and in sweetening coffee and tea. Its crystals are coarse and brown, with a rich molasses flavor. Also known as Turbinado sugar.

Demerara sugar has nutritional properties similar to those of organic evaporated cane juice: less processed than refined sugar, with more nutrients. Unlike some brown sugars, Demerara is not made by adding molasses to processed sugar; rather, it comes straight from sugar cane juice. The juice is spun in a turbine, causing the water to evaporate and the sugar to crystallize into coarse Demerara.

Demerara sugar gets its name from the region in Guyana where it was first made. Many Americans call it Turbinado sugar, after the turbines in which it is dehydrated. Use Demerara as a substitute for refined sugar in some recipes, as a topping for baked goods and oatmeal, and as a sweetener.

“OK, this is my second order from and I ordered the Demerara sugar. There are different "grades" of this sugar and theirs is a rich light brown. I broke my hubby of his "white sugar" habit and he only uses demerara in his coffee. I highly recommend this sugar for it's rich taste. Oh yes, you can use it for baking or whatever as well.
