About Lotus Demerara sugar
Organic Demerara sugar or Turbinado sugar is usually used as a purportedly healthier alternative to white sugar, partly due to the fact that it is not as processed. While the flavor may differ slightly, the sweetening ability and sugar content is essentially identical to more refined sugars. In the United Kingdom, a common natural brown sugar is sold as demerara sugar, after the Demerara colony in Guyana.
These types of natural brown sugar are typically paler and drier than what is normally sold as brown sugar, and have larger crystals, particularly turbinado sugar.
