Cane Sugar Muscovado Light
Refined, Because Its Not Refined.
Sugar is primarily refined from two plants. In temperate zones like central Europe, the sugar beet is used and in the tropics, sugar cane. The chemical composition of the sugar from sugar beets or sugar cane may be identical, but cane sugar is distinctly more aromatic. We offer cane sugar from Mauritius, a perfect location for the cultivation of cane sugar: the island offers an ideal combination of the appropriate climate, prime soil conditions and tropical sun.
The canes for Billington’s cane sugar are crushed within 24 hours of harvest; directly following the fresh juice is squeezed out. The extracted juice is directed through a series of cooking vats. At first a light green, the juice thickens and darkens in colour to a chestnut honey coloured mass, the molasse. The mass is stirred by hand until the heat and remaining water have dissipated and the molasses sugar crystallises. Untreated and unrefined cane sugar locks in the natural molasses of the sugar cane (rather than the molasse is refined out) and displays a crumbly, somewhat moist consistency. This sugar is more than just a sweetener. It's virtually a spice. It will be worth your while to experiment with it and find out how much the sweetness, flavour and consistency of sugar can differ.
