Unrefined brown sugar offers bright, clear color and rich taste with delicious underlying spice, butter, and caramel flavor. In the African island nation of Mauritius, 90% of the land devoted to agriculture is planted with sugar cane. The soil, rich with volcanic ash, produces a sugar cane unparalleled anywhere else in the world. The result, of course, is outstanding sugar.
India Tree Demerara Sugar from Mauritius is a large-grained cane sugar with a relatively low molasses content--hence its paler color and milder flavor. It makes an excellent table and topping sugar, and is ideal for sweeting breakfast cereals, yogurt, and coffee.

In actuality, "India" was not a single place or kingdom, but a composite of many countries and cultures as yet unknown to Western civilization.
The desire of Europeans to discover "India" gave birth to the Age of Exploration, followed by three centuries of expanding trade and colonization. It also gave birth to new nations. America grew strong and prosperous on trade with the East.
The never ending quest for the exotic has given rise to many legends. Inspired by such tales, INDIA TREE, under the leadership of Gretchen Goehrend, Founder and President, is creating a legend of its own by bringing together under the INDIA TREE label an extraordinary assortment of quality products from around the world.
