White Sugar

White sugar comes either from sugar cane or sugar beets. To obtain white sugar, the cane or beets are cleaned and then crushed to extract the juice.

The juice contains 85% water, 15% sugar and 1 to 3% impurities. To produce white sugar, it undergoes several treatment steps (filtration, evaporation and cooking) before the final phase of purification.

Raw sugar / Demerara Sugar / Barbados Sugar
This is “white” sugar that, at the end of processing, is somewhat less purified. It still contains a few little impurities that account for its brownish color.
