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.

  • Sprinkle on breakfast cereals and in yogurt
  • Stir into coffee
  • Use to glaze ham
  • Decorate cookies and add interest to apple crisp and bread pudding
  • Sprinkle over fresh berries
Store your Demerara sugar in an air tight container. If the sugar hardens, place it in a bowl, and cover the bowl with a wet cloth, until the sugar softens again.
100% Demerara Sugar from Mauritius
For centuries, the word "India" referred to a fabled kingdom in the East known to the western world for its silk, porcelain, spices, sugar, and tea. These treasures traveled westward by caravan over the legendary Silk Road, then from Arabian ports to Europe by sea.

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.
