Demerara sugar is a crunchy, medium grain, golden brown sugar. It is rich in natural sugarcane molasses. It is by far one of the healthiest sugars to consume because it contains 11 calories per teaspoon as compared to 16 calories per teaspoon of refined white sugar. It also contains calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. These minerals are only found in trace amounts in refined white sugar. Demerara sugar is a great natural sugar to use in sugar scrubs. Store it in an airtight container, and keep it in a moisture-free environment.
