is there any difference between brown sugar and white sugar?
Brown sugar used to be just less refined than white and its brown colour came from the tar inside the sugar cane.
Now a days the add molasses to white to make it look brown.
White sugar is refined sugar beet or sugar cane which removes many of the nutrients. Brown sugar is refined but not to the extent of white. Brown sugar has molasses added to it and can dry out and become hard if not sealed up properly.
Natural brown sugar has been refined to leave more of the impurities behind, manufactured brown sugar is white sugar with a percentage of those impurities in the molasses fed back in.
This is very short and sweet, and rough, but it is how my friend, Mr. Neville, a part time sugar cane plantation farmer in Jamaica explained it to me once. He used to work at the same factory as me over here in the UK and travelled back once a year to check on the farm, he has to work outside of the farm because the small Caribbean farmers are being destroyed by the USA.
