John,
If you haven't found/Googled the answer it's raw/unprocessed/unrefined
coarse grained cane sugar, usually tan colored.

I've always wondered why turbinado is marketed as raw since it is processed
similarly to white cane sugar. The process has been altered to allow the
final product to retain molasses flavors and to appear less refined.

Hmmm, Turbinado sugar not processed the same, or maybe more accurately as
far, as white sugar in my understanding. 
"Turbinado Sugar is made by crushing the freshly-cut sugar cane to squeeze
out the juice, rich in molasses, vitamins and minerals.  The cane juice is
evaporated and spun in a centrifuge, or turbine, to produce the large
sparkling golden crystals.  For this reason, this style of natural large
sugar crystals is often referred to as Turbinado Sugar."

I am a fan of demerara sugar. 
I was trying to play more than anything else. In my mind I equate raw with
being uncooked. I believe in the sugar industry, sugar is considered raw
until refined to being nearly only sucrose. The cane juice is "cooked"
whether raw or refined.
