Unrefined Demerara cane sugar is a healthier substitute for common white sugar. The name "Demerara" means that the sugar is in larger crystals than standard sugar. Unlike its substitute, cane sugar contains molasses, which gives it a unique, slightly caramel flavor and aroma. Cane sugar also owes its color to molasses, the color varies from golden to dark brown. Produced from sugar cane, it does not undergo the refining process, thanks to which it contains valuable nutrients such as: iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. The latter - potassium cane sugar contains from 100 to 1200 ppm, where white sugar only about 30 ppm. In ancient times, cane sugar was used not only in the kitchen. It played an important role in folk medicine and herbal medicine. It was used as an analgesic, antibacterial and expectorant.
