What is Sugar In The Raw?
Sugar In The Raw is a natural Turbinado sugar made exclusively from sugarcane. Juice is extracted from the sugarcane and then crystallized through evaporation to maintain its natural molasses, golden color and distinctive flavor. The resulting crystals are rinsed with a very small amount of water to remove just enough stickiness to make the product free-flowing. We pack this Turbinado sugar and market it under the Sugar In The Raw brand name.
Why, if it's less refined, is Sugar In The Raw more expensive than white sugar?
Sugar In The Raw is a premium tropical Turbinado sugar made from all natural cane. Worldwide, there are few growing and manufacturing facilities devoted to producing high quality Turbinado sugar, so the supply is much more limited than white sugar. As a result, Sugar In The Raw costs more than white sugar.
How may I use Sugar In The Raw?
Add it to your coffee, tea, cappuccino or latte. Replace white sugar in recipes with an equal quantity of Sugar In The Raw. Sprinkle over cereal or fruit. Mix with cinnamon and sprinkle over pancakes, waffles, or French toast. Use as a topping on muffins, cookies and other baked treats. Blend with fruit and skim milk or yogurt for a healthy smoothie. Use in glazes and sauces for meat and poultry.

What makes Sugar In The Raw different from other sugars? Is it healthier for me than regular sugar?
Sugar In The Raw's distinctive color and taste comes from the sugarcane molasses flavor that naturally occurs in the crystals. By contrast, white sugar is obtained by refining the sugarcane crystals to remove the molasses (and with that, trace nutrients). Some nutritionists believe that the small amount of micronutrients retained in Sugar In The Raw provides advantages over refined white sugar. In contrast, some commercial brown sugars are made by adding coloring and flavor back to refined white sugar; this is not the case with Sugar In The Raw.

About In The Raw
The story of In The Raw is a simple one, but they like to think it's worth sharing. When In The Raw founder, Marvin Eisenstadt, joined his dad's Brooklyn sugar-packing business in 1956, natural food wasn't much of a buzzword yet. But before long, a local restaurant called Brownie's asked Marvin to help find a natural, less-processed sugar for their health-conscious customers. Marv jumped right on the idea, then to the tropics and back with a delicious Turbinado sugar. He named it Sugar In The Raw. Because that's exactly what it is.
Over the years, more and more people caught on to the wholesome alternative, but it wasn't until the late 1990's that the all-natural sweetening revolution really took off, and coffee houses put the little brown packets on every other street corner across America. Pretty lucky for us. Luckier still, people are always looking for more natural options these days. So Marv and his sons, Steven and Jeff, and son-in-law, Michael, introduced Stevia In The Raw. Agave In The Raw came next and then Monk Fruit In The Raw.
That's pretty much it, but there's plenty more on the horizon. If you want to find out more just give us a call. Or heck, stop by and say hello if you're in Brooklyn. They would love to meet you.
