Dark Soft Brown Sugar

A moist, dark brown sugar with a rich aroma and texture from its high molasses content and fine grain size.



Dark soft brown sugar fulfils several functions across different products, primarily adding flavour, colour and spread.

It is regularly used in baking due to the fine texture and volume it achieves in cakes. In addition, dark soft brown sugar adds flavour, colour and spread in denser baked goods, such as fruit cakes.

Dark soft brown sugar is also used in sauces and toffees, as its relatively small grain size means it easily dissolves. It also adds a strong aroma, sweetness and rich brown colour.

Tasting notes

Dark soft brown sugar has a strong flavour underpinned by a rich sweetness. Unlike white sugar, dark soft brown sugar contains natural molasses. As a result, it contains trace amounts of nutrients and minerals, including:

Refined sugar arrives at Ragus’ production facility. The sugar is expertly blended with our unique molasses syrup and treacle blend, giving dark soft brown sugar its distinctive dark brown colour and rich flavour.

In addition, it also has a fine texture due to a relatively small grain size. While similar to soft brown light sugar, it has a stronger taste and deeper colour, and as a result is used for different applications.


Richer flavours due to its higher molasses content means dark soft brown sugar can be used in sauces and baked goods such as fruitcake. If you would like to learn more about our crystalline sugars, contact our Customer Services Team.
