Today’s Featured Ingredient

Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is made by adding sugar cane molasses to completely white refined sugar crystals. Brown sugar may contain slightly more essential nutrients than while sugar. It isn’t necessarily good for you. There are two types of brown sugar, light and dark. The lighter the brown sugar the more delicate the flavor. Dark brown sugar has a more intense molasses flavour.
Brown sugar is often use in baking and cooking. When you want to bake but have no brown sugar, simply add some molasses to some white sugar. Light brown sugar contains 3.5 percent molasses and dark brown sugar 6.5 percent. By adding molasses to white sugar you are doing what they are doing at the factory, but much cheaper. Molasses is obtained from sugar cane. Brown sugar has slightly less calories than white sugar.
