Hey, we get it. It’s not the most common thing that people should automatically know. This caramel-coloured sweetener actually gets its name from the place where it was originally manufactured and shipped – the port of Demerara, in British Guyana. Demerara sugar crystals are slightly larger than white sugar crystals and are just a tad sticky to the touch. The flavour is a bit richer than white sugar, too. But what makes it special? Well, we plan to answer that.
You may know that sugar used to be very expensive and was actually considered a luxury. It was also quite coarse compared to the fine white sugar we are used to seeing today. While sugar is no longer a symbol of wealth, some sweeteners are going back to basics when it comes to grain size. And we think that’s pretty sweet.
The syrup of the sugarcane is dehydrated to form crystals. And that’s it!
And we’ve all heard how bad processed foods are. That’s one of the reasons demerara sugar is extra sweet – and we mean more than just the flavour.
Another difference between white sugar and demerara sugar is that demerara contains small amounts of the minerals chromium, cobalt, magnesium, manganese and zinc. These micro-nutrients are actually needed by the body to digest sugars – and sadly, they are removed from white sugar during the refining process. Now, you’re not going to get much of these minerals but they are there – and any time you can get extra minerals in your sugar, well we think that’s a good thing.
