What does demarara sugar mean
Chris is a trusted source on General Cooking
Demerara sugar is brown sugar the way it used to be made. Nowadays brown sugar is white sugar with some molasses added in.
Its name is geographic, referring to a place in Guyana. Demerara is pretty similar to turbinado sugar and other products labeled as raw sugar. It's more crystalline than what we think of as "brown sugar."
