2. Brown Sugar vs. Demerara Sugar

Demerara sugar resembles brown sugar in appearance, and both contain molasses, but their coloring comes from different processes. The sugar is light brown because the process does not remove all the molasses from it. Brown sugar undergoes almost the same amount of processing as white sugar, and then has some molasses added back.
