Raw Sugar

Raw sugar is the natural sugar cane is pressed and mixed with lime, this liquid is then reduced through evaporation producing ‘crystals’. A centrifuge is then used to separate these crystals. Finally they are left to dry, the resulting brown colour is due to the presence of molasses.

In the United States, true raw sugar is not sold to consumers. Products labeled and sold as raw sugar, such as Demerara sugar and turbinado sugar, have been refined in some way. Cleaned through a steaming process, turbinado sugar is a coarse sugar with a subtle molasses flavor. It is available in many health food stores.
