Sugar is soluble in water and so can be extracted from plants like sugar cane or sugar beet quite easily, as well as dissolved when stirred into liquids like tea. The extraction process involves the concentration of sucrose syrup from the plants and then the evaporation of all the water, which causes the sucrose to solidify into small sugar crystals. These are usually brown in colour because of a small amount of residual carbohydrate and some minerals from the plant. This is called unrefined brown sugar, as the process of refinement would extract out the reaming impurities, leaving the sugar white. The sugar is named Demerara after the South American colony of Demerara, in which it was originally made (by slaves).
