WHAT DOES MUSCOVADO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

muscovado

Muscovado

Muscovado is a type of unrefined brown sugar with a strong molasses flavor. Also known as "Barbados sugar", "molasses sugar" or "moist sugar", muscovado is very dark brown and slightly coarser and stickier than most brown sugars. Muscovado takes its flavor and color from its source, sugarcane juice. It offers good resistance to high temperatures and has a reasonably long shelf life. It is commonly used in baking recipes and making rum. Muscovado sugar can be used in most recipes where brown sugar is called for, by slightly reducing the liquid content of the recipe. Muscovado sugar has 11 calories/ 4 grams. When produced under regulated conditions, it is nutritionally richer than other brown sugars or refined sugar, and retains most of the natural minerals inherent in sugarcane juice, as shown in this chart: Mineral content of muscovado sugar: ▪ Total mineral salts 740 mg max. ▪ Phosphorus 3.9 mg max. ▪ Calcium 85 mg max. ▪ Magnesium 23 mg max. ▪ Potassium 100 mg max. ▪ Iron 1.3 mg max.
