Product Review- Sugar in the Raw
"Sugar In The Raw natural cane turbinado sugar is grown and cut exclusively on a 37,000 acre plantation in central Maui, Hawaii. There, nature’s own sweetener is gently converted into the natural crystals that make Sugar In The Raw. The secret lies in the fact that Sugar In The Raw is never bleached or over processed. It is the result of slow boiling layer upon layer of high colored cane— allowing the golden crystals to retain their natural molasses and bringing the extra flavor and richness that nature intended. You’ll immediately recognize the difference in our large crystals and deep golden hue. Sugar In The Raw adds rich taste to coffee and tea drinks and a robust flavor to baked goods. Its distinct luster and depth of its crystals distinguish Sugar In The Raw from all other natural sugars."
Sugar In The Raw
Turbinado sugar is raw sugar that has been refined to a light tan color by washing in a centrifuge under sanitary conditions. Surface molasses is removed in the washing process. In total sugar content turbinado is closer to refined sugar than to raw sugar.
I have read that Sugar in the Raw is a little better for you than bleached, processed refined sugar. So I thought I would give it a try.
I will let you know what I think........then what Hubs thinks.....LOL
