In general, sugar comes either from sugar cane or sugar beets.  Brown sugar is extracted from sugar cane.  Brown sugar consists of unrefined crystals still covered with a thin layer of molasses.  Molasses is in fact a residue from the refining of sugar cane stems.  It’s what gives the delicious taste to unrefined brown sugar.  Brown sugar, whether light, dark, or almost-black molasses, always has a strong and distinctive flavor!  Currently, in the kitchen, it is very easy to swap white sugar and brown, but be aware that there is a real difference in taste!
