HOW IS RAW SUGAR MADE
- It is made in the 1st stages of sugar cane processing method, where sugar stored in the sugar cane stalk is separated and crushed and then the juices are squeezed out and clarified sugar cane juice is evaporated and spun in a turbine or centrifuge, producing large golden brown crystals-natural brown sugar, this would be called partially processed brown stage, where some or none of the molasses is not removed in the process that is what makes the sugar brown.
- Raw sugar is brown because it contains molasses, which also attributes to more complex flavor over white sugar
BAKING WITH RAW SUGAR
nutritionist I came to conclusion that table sugar and raw sugar are very similar in terms what they provide and the impact they have on our body. There are no significant amounts of vitamins or minerals , okay there are some but not a whole lot. What it comes down to is that I prefer using less processed foods and raw sugar falls into that category, it also offers different properties when used in baking. However the way it affects our body is no different of the white sugar. Surprised? I sure was.
