Demerara is a raw cane sugar often used in home baking and in sweetening coffee and tea. Its crystals are coarse and brown, with a rich molasses flavor. This is similar to Turbinado sugar.

Demerara sugar has nutritional properties similar to those of organic evaporated cane juice: less processed than refined sugar, with more nutrients. Unlike some brown sugars, Demerara is not made by adding molasses to processed sugar; rather, it comes straight from sugar cane juice. The juice is spun in a turbine, causing the water to evaporate and the sugar to crystallize into coarse Demerara.

Demerara sugar gets its name from the region in Guyana where it was first made. Many Americans call it Turbinado sugar, after the turbines in which it is dehydrated. Use Demerara as a substitute for refined sugar in some recipes, as a topping for baked goods and oatmeal, and as a sweetener.

This batch is great compared to my last one, which was so light in color that made me think it was Turbinado (and almost sent back); and not Demerara because Demerara is much darker, richer, has a greater molasses flavor.
