BROWN SUGAR MASCABADO OR MASCABO
The procedure called Mascavado consists of, in first instance, of heating the juice extracted from the sugar cane. The water is then allowed to evaporate completely to a dry residue which is then milled, resulting in a true whole-grain sugar.
Its color is dark brown, with a very particular aroma and flavor, in addition to a somewhat sticky texture.
Although sweeten less than white sugar, brown sugar can be used to add flavor to infusions or to recipes such as cakes or desserts.
The brown sugar has a minimum refining process and therefore maintains the essential vitamins and minerals that are present in the plant, it is almost like eating the natural sugar cane, which can not be said of refined sugar. Brown sugar is rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, among others, which makes it better than refined sugar
