I found this sugar at HFS, called Rapadura sugar; it is the dried whole natural juice of the sugar cane.
"Unlike other sugar, Rapadura sugar is never seperated from its molasses content, thus it retains all the vitamins and minerals available from sugar cane. No preservatives or additives."

It tastes pretty baaad (as in really, really, good)  
I wonder if it would change the stats on sugar re BTD/GTD.
It has a delicious molassassy chewy consistency not as sugary as Brown sugar but not as harsh as molasses. It looks like brown sugar. I think I would use it in occasionally in desserts.
While we are talkin the sweet stuff, agave is pricey here!- does anyone buy cheap and or bulk agave? It is treated like gold here.

I was pretty sure all these years that that was brown sugar as I thought brown sugar was not separated from it's molassas  content and that's what made it brown sugar.

I think brown sugar is white sugar with  molasses added back in.

I guess it's cheaper to do it that way than to separate them out beforehand.

It's like orange juice.  You'd think the less they did to it the less the cost would be.  But no, actually, if they boil down the juice and make it into concentrate, it's cheaper (lighter) to ship.  Then when it gets to where it's going, they reconstitute it and bottle it.  But even though it's more labor-intensive, it's cheaper than the "real, not from concentrate" juice which is almost gourmet, isn't it?  My inlaws live across the road from an orange grove (yeah, it probably gets sprayed a lot, but not when we're there, thankfully) and a few miles from the juice processing (concentrating) plant.  It smells SO good when we drive past.

It should have the same rating as this: http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?407

There are older threads on this board that discuss raw sugar in whatever form.

Ah, and that link explains why DH can have molasses.  Prolonged boiling inactivates all that "bad-for-type-B" stuff.

Agave is very expensive here too. I cant seem to like the taste of molasses & black strap molasses-too cupboard-y. I use jaggery instead http://www.sugarindia.com/jag.htm. Not much though...

Mmmm, I think at the most "Untested therefore Neutral", coz it's not in the BTD books, or TypeBase or the GTD.

Yes, it's has an amazing flavour. There are so many varieties of jaggery-from sugar cane, from palm tree etc etc.
