Turbinado Sugar


Almost instantly recognized as the ubiquitous “Sugar in the Raw” brand found in high end coffee shops and many grocery stores this sugar isn’t actually raw, as in a totally unrefined sugar. While frequently called “Sugar in the Raw” in this country it is also known as Turbinado Sugar or Raw Turbinado Sugar and it’s what remains after freshly cut raw sugar cane is crushed squeezing out the juice, the resulting crystals are spun in a turbine to dry them, as well as to remove excess plant material, leaving a coarse molasses rich granule that’s golden to light brown in color.

The name Turbinado Sugar gets its name from the turbines that are used to process it. Turbinado’s flavor profile includes undertones of honey with hints of molasses and it can be used as a direct substitute for brown or white sugar in baking. Its molasses like flavor works especially well in barbecue sauces, brownies and in your morning cup of coffee or tea. Compared to regular refined white sugar, Turbinado Sugar has a higher moisture content, which makes it ideal for melting and caramelizing. That’s why we prefer it for everything from homemade crème brûlée to rubs for the grill.

A favorite of commercial and home bakers Turbinado Sugar’s texture also works great in crunchy toppings for cakes, cookies or muffins and can also be added to the top of your oatmeal, puddings or sugar cookies.
