RAW CANE SUGARS

RAW CANE SUGAR

aka turbinado sugar, demerara sugar, washed sugar,

evaporated cane juice

  • Raw cane sugars are made directly from the cane juice in a Sugar Mill, which are always located close to cane fields 

  • In a sugar mill, clarified cane juice is evaporated and a single-crystallization process results in sugar crystals covered with molasses

  • To separate the molasses from the sucrose crystals, a centrifuge is used; that's why raw sugars are called centrifuged sugars

  • Raw sugars retain trace amounts of the cane molasses, which gives them a delicate flavor and blond to light brown color

  • They typically contain less than 2% molasses, over 97% sucrose, and small amounts of invert sugar (fructose plus glucose)

  • Their crystals are dry and free-flowing, which means they pour easily and do not clump; they usually show an attractive sparkle   

  • Produced in several crystals sizes, from medium to coarse, and various molasses content - responsible for their blonde to brown colors

  • Coarse crystals do not readily dissolve and have a crunchy texture; sugar cubes and syrups made from raw sugars are also available 

  • Be aware that raw sugars are only slightly less refined than table sugar but they are in fact much less processed

  • They are perceived as healthier than table sugar, but they do not provide more nutritive value when compared to white refined sugars.

NAMES, COLOR & CRYSTAL SIZE

 
Cane Syrup from Raw Sugar
Invert syrup may be produced from raw sugar. It is mainly raw cane sugar blended with 'invert sugar' and water. To produce 'Invert sugar', an acid or the enzyme invertase is added to a syrup made with raw cane sugar and water. The sucrose molecule (from the raw sugar) then breaks down into its component parts, glucose and fructose. The resulting syrup is called 'full invert' if about 90% of the sucrose is broken down or 'medium invert' if about 50% of the sucrose splits.
Organic Cane Molasses
Organic blackstrap molasses is a by-product of the refining process of organic raw cane sugars. It is produced in a Sugar Mill, which is always located close to cane plantations. Organic blackstrap molasses is slightly sweeter and less bitter than regular blackstrap molasses (produced in a Sugar Refinery). It is made from organic sugarcane and is processed according USDA's Organic Standards.

Demerara Sugar Cubes
Cubes & Tablets from Raw Cane Sugar. Are obtained from raw sugar that is moist with water and then compressed or molded into a particular shape such as Cubes & Tablets. Contain over 95% sucrose. Commonly used to sweeten hot drinks.
Organic Sugar | Medium Blonde
Organic sugar is a raw cane sugar with medium size crystals made from organic sugarcane and processed according USDA's Organic Standards. They retain trace amounts of the original cane molasses, consequently having blond color and a delicate molasses flavor. They contain 99.5% sucrose.
Organic Sugar | Coarse Brown
Organic cane sugars are raw sugars made from organic sugarcane and processed according USDA's Organic Standards. Are slightly less refined than table sugar but are much less processed. Retain small amounts of the original cane molasses (typically < 2%) consequently having blond color and a hint of molasses flavor. TYoically contain 97 to 99.5% sucrose.
Organic Light Brown Sugar
Organic brown sugars are produced by adding organic cane molasses to organic sugar.
Organic Dark Brown Sugar
Organic brown sugars are produced by adding organic cane molasses to organic sugar.
Organic Powdered Sugar
Organic powdered sugar is made by grinding organic sugar and then blending it with an organic anti-caking agent such as organic tapioca or corn starch. Retains a bit of the cane’s natural molasses flavor.
Organic Rock Sugar
Organic rock sugar is made from organic sugarcane and processed according USDA's Organic Standards.
