Not really demerara, but white beet sugar!!
I was quite annoyed to discover that this is solid as demerara sugar when in fact it is REFINED WHITE BEET SUGAR with molasses added back to it to make it brown!!! DEMERARA sugar is a sugar made from reduced, crystallized CANE juice. That is, it is a form of brown sugar with the molasses left in during the refining process. Regular brown sugar is actually made from pure white sugar, with molasses added back in for flavor. Please Tesco stop misleading customers who think they are purchasing cane sugar when in fact they are being sold REFINED WHITE BEET SUGAR at a premium price. To be truthful you should rename your product as BROWN BEET SUGAR not DEMERARA SUGAR which is made from sugar cane not sugar beet.
More like golden granulated than Demerara.
I do not like this at all. Most Demerara has a darker colour than this and large grains which give it it’s crunchiness. I have never before seen or tasted such anaemic-looking Demerara with such a fine grain. I had to check the packet as I thought I had been sent golden granulated by mistake. I will not buy it again, however much cheaper it might be than some other brands.
Great for baking
Love this sugar, it makes the best crunchy and tasty crumbles
Perfect for cakes and biscuits
Always use this for making cakes and biscuits, excellent results every time particularly when baking coconut macaroons!
Demerara at its best
Same great flavour as the top leading brands great in coffee or making desserts
Tesco have invited me to review this item, so I'd just like to say it's Demerara sugar in a fair size bag! Better value than branded Demerara sugar, yet sweetens my coffee in the very same way. Remarkable, really.
