Growing Applications of Demerara Sugar in Baking Applications Drive Market Growth

Demerara sugar is a kind of raw cane sugar that is minimally processed. It is available in the form of large grains of amber color, and is mainly used as a garnishing ingredient. In the baking industry, demerara sugar is largely used as a topping for baked goods such as muffins, scones, cookies, cakes as well as for crumbles. Demerara has a subtle molasses taste making it more delicious than normal white sugar. It keeps the baked products soft and moist. The mixture of sugar and water helps sugar hold in moisture so that products such as cookies, muffins, brownies, and frosts do not dry out too easily. It produces tenderness, deepens color and flavor, and adds crunchiness. Owing to this, it is widely used in baking applications. It mostly contains the right amount of calcium and magnesium, and also contains B3, B5, and B6 vitamins. The demerara sugar is also known to be helpful in retaining vitamins and minerals present innately in sugarcane. In addition, Demerara sugar contains substantially lower sucrose (88–93%) than white sugar (96–98%). Increasing awareness about the health benefits of demerara sugar is driving the demand for its introduction in various recipes.

Nature Insights

Based on nature, the demerara sugar market is bifurcated into organic and conventional. The conventional segment accounted for a larger market share in 2019; whereas, the market for organic demerara sugar is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The conventional form of farming technique is widely adopted among the farmers to obtain higher yield and availability of product at low cost. The technique runs in favor of the producers and cultivators as the yields are high in comparison to cost. Moreover, the lack of knowledge among farmers toward health benefits associated with the organic farming have promoted the growth of the segment. For instance, in 2017, almost 63% of farmers adopted conventional agriculture to produce demerara sugar and 37% of them opted organic agriculture in Turkey. However, there are several disadvantages related to this method. Demerara sugar produced by conventional method may contain less nutrients. Conventional farming is one of the most practiced farming methods that involves use of fertilizers, pesticides and other chemical compounds. Further, it also involves health and environmental hazards as it involves the release of pollutants to the environment.
