Turbinado sugar, also known as turbinated sugar, is made from sugar cane extract. It is produced by crushing freshly cut sugar cane; the juice obtained is evaporated and then spun in a centrifuge, or turbine (thus the name), which results in the characteristic large, light brown crystals.
Turbinado sugar is similar in appearance to brown sugar but paler, with larger crystals, and in general the two can be exchanged freely in recipes, only insofar as sweetness is concerned. Light brown sugar will definitely alter the taste, and dark brown will make a significant difference in taste. A popular brand name for turbinado sugar is Sugar in the Raw. Turbinado and demerara sugars may be the same. United Kingdom recipies tend to call for demerara, while in the United States, they are apt to use the term turbinado, and that is also what to look for on grocery shelves. In the U.S., turbinado sugar is associated as an organic product. They are both steamed cane sugar of quite large crystals. Demerara sugar is often served in cubes with tea in England.
