Organic Cane Raw Sugar has a hint of caramel flavour which comes from molasses left in the crystals during the refining process. Raw sugar is produced directly from the cane juice in a sugar mill. After the juice is extracted and clarified, it undergoes a single-crystallization process. This depends, but generally, raw cane sugar has 2% to 3% molasses, which gives it a subtle flavour and colour, varying from dark to light brown. Raw sugar is less refined but more processed than unrefined sugars (for example, panela from Colombia, piloncillo from Mexico, rapadura from Brazil, jaggery from India, rock sugar from China, kokuto from Japan, and muscovado from Mauritius or Philippines). In contrast, “unrefined sugar” has more molasses ranging from 8 to 14%. Raw sugar doesn’t mean unrefined, unprocessed, or in its original state. Rather, it means a single crystallization sugar, because it is crystallized only once.
Unlike white sugar, raw brown sugar contains some minerals, such as calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium. However, the quantities contained in brown sugar are insignificant. On the other hand, “unrefined sugars” have slightly more nutrients present in molasses, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants when compared to refined and raw sugars. Still, the amount per serving is minuscule.
