07 May In the Raw-Turbinado Sugar
What’s the difference?
We have options these days. Is there a “better” choice?
There is the white stuff. And then we move into the various hybrids of light, dark and tan sugars.
It all boils down to molasses, the varying amount that is left to coat the sugar crystals that is the by product of cane sugar reduction.
True , molasses has a mineral content that could add up.These include calcium, iron, copper, potassium phosphorous, manganese and magnesium. Brown sugars also contains trace amounts of vitamins B3, B6 and B9. The minerals are very good for you but don’t try and get them all from cake.
Think about texture. Foods that touch your tongue in a way that keeps all those ADD taste buds paying attention.
Think of a cappuccino; sprinkle that crunchy stuff on top and let it do its magic against the creamy foam.
It’s all sweet.
