Raw cane sugar has a richer flavour; the amount of sugar for preparation of a dish will be lesser if raw sugar is used instead of refined, making it reliable low-sugar option. The global raw sugar market is expected to rise at a 4.6% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2022 to 2032, as conducted by industry and market research on raw sugar.

ranges from 80%-90%.
The other constituents are glucose, fructose (2-5%), and ash (1-3%).

The global raw sugar market
is expected to rise at
Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2022 to 2032. . The
causes for the anticipated growth are discussed below-
a.Increased production- In countries like Brazil, Thailand and
China caused the growth of the market .
b.Consumers’ awareness – of the ill effects of refined sugar,
like causation of obesity, cardiovascular disease and type-2
diabetes, is a factor for a surge in demand for raw cane sugar.
Since demerara sugar contains magnesium, manganese, cobalt, chromium and
zinc, it is increasingly consumed by health-conscious individuals .
c. Increased demand among food manufacturers- Since it contains no saturated fats,
the demand for raw cane sugar is rising among food manufacturers. Food manufacturers
