Most of us think we know what sugar is and this will likely bring to mind white refined sugar which is the most prevalent type found at home and in grocery stores, bakeries and commercial kitchens. Refined white sugar is typically made from either sugarcane or sugar beets. Once harvested they're then sufficiently refined and made into the granular white sugar we all know so well.
But sugar isn't just sweet. Raw sugars like Demerara, Muscovado and Turbinado have deep flavor complexities and distinctive aromas that will completely change your perceptions of sugar. The popularity of Demerara has been rising over the years first in Europe and more recently in our country.
Demerara sugar is a harder to find exotic sugar named after the Demerara River in Guyana. Today Demerara sugar is primarily sourced from Hawaii, India, Mexico and Mauritius (an island nation located southeast of the African continent).
Some have mistakenly described Demerara sugar as brown sugar. That would be incorrect. Brown sugar is actually just refined white sugar that is lightly bathed in a bit of molasses. Demerara sugar comes from the first crystallization which occurs as the cane juice is processed into sugar crystals (this is a similar process to naturally evaporating cane juice).
Demerara has a natural caramel-like flavor that hasn't been processed out while brown sugar, after processing, has had molasses flavor (and color) added back in.
