With brown sugar there's a bit of deception going on these days. Don't be fooled! Most "natural" brown sugar products are created by adding molasses to fully-refined sugar. REAL natural brown sugar, known as Turbinado Sugar, is created from a partially-refined sugar cane extract that's a healthier alternative to white (and refined brown) table sugars. Trained agents know that Turbinado Sugar crystals are larger and typically more pale and dry as compared to refined white sugar in its clever brown disguise.
