TURBINADO SUGAR

A specialty brown sugar cane extract whose name derives because it is created when spun in a cylinder or turbine while being sprayed. It is considered a raw sugar, similar to but more refined than demerara sugar. White sugar is the result of removing the molasses from turbinado sugar, and brown sugar is the result of adding molasses to white sugar. Turbinado sugar is large-grained and paler than brown sugar (it is actually golden brown in color) with a honey-like flavor, and can be substituted for it in recipes, to top cereal (try it on oatmeal), crème brûlée, or in coffee. Sugar In The Raw is a prominent brand name of turbinado sugar.

ULTRAFINE SUGAR

See superfine sugar.

UNREFINED SUGAR and SWEETENER
Unrefined cane sugar is made from raw sugar; the nutrients, flavor and color have not been removed. Barley malt, raw honey, maple syrup and rice syrup are also considered unrefined sweeteners, since they undergo minimal processing during production. Although a better choice than refined sweeteners, they still provide calories and should be consumed in moderation. See also raw sugar.

 

VANILLA SUGAR
Vanilla-flavored granulated sugar can be purchased commercially or made by placing a vanilla bean in a sealed pound canister of granulated sugar for at least week.

WHITE SUGAR
See granulated sugar.

WHOLE SWEETENER
A whole sweetener is one that has not been refined, like raw sugar, or which otherwise has more flavor and nutritive value than refined white sugars, which. Some other whole sweeteners include agave, date sugar, fruit juice, honey and maple syrup.
