Billington's Natural Demerara Sugar is a crunchy, golden brown sugar with a sticky texture and rich aroma. Its large, sparkling champagne-colored crystals make it a terrific, crunchy topping on cookies, cakes, muffins, and gourmet desserts. It is also fantastic sprinkled on melons, grilled fruit, or warm oatmeal. In Great Britain, Demerara Sugar is the traditional sweetener for beverages such as breakfast tea and cappuccino.
Simply stated, Billington’s Natural Unrefined Cane Sugars are unlike any sugar you will ever taste. The secret to Billington’s remarkable flavor is in the molasses: unlike conventional sugars on the market, Billington’s Natural Unrefined Cane Sugars still hold a bit of the cane’s natural molasses within each glistening crystal. Our Demerara is made simply ... with the aim of locking in, not refining out, the sugar cane's natural molasses.
Produced naturally on the 27 mile island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Billington’s gourmet sugars bring centuries of tradition into each sparking crystal. Mauritius has a unique combination of climate, soil conditions and tropical sun that is perfectly suited to growing sugar cane unmatched in quality. Within just 24 hours of harvesting, the cane is crushed and the sweet juices are collected, clarified to remove impurities, evaporated and crystallized. It’s really that simple. The Billington's packages have been completely redesigned and are now available in bag-in-box packaging. The new inner lining is heat sealed and specially designed to keep these gourmet sugars fresh and delicious.
