Unrefined brown sugar is nutritionally better than regular sugar. Unlike the sharp, bright colour and texture of super refined white sugar, organic brown sugar has a deep caramel or toffee-like flavor from the added molasses. And a soft texture, which makes it ideal for chocolate cakes, cookies, and rich fruit cakes.
Slightly higher calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron content than white sugar.
Often made into sugar syrup, with spices, to flavor beverages.
