Sugar can be refined into different grades and particle sizes to serve a variety of sugar applications. Sugar can be produced as regular granulated sugar and coarse sugar, or further ground into varying grades of fine, super-fine and powdered sugars.
Granulated sugar is a type of sugar which has been refined into a standard granular particle size distribution in the range of 1-2.5mm, with minimal or no dust. Granulated sugar is used in cocoa mixes, powdered drink mixes, dry mixes and coatings for doughnuts and cookies, candy, preserves, jams, jellies, condiments, dairy products, meats, canning, pickles, and snack foods.
Superfine and powdered sugars are granulated sugars which have been pulverized into a particle range of 100-250 microns, or smaller (generally categorized as 6X, 10X and 12X icing sugar). Powdered sugar is used in a wide range of bakery, candy and confectionery products, is suitable for icing and dusting, and is also used in pharmaceutical applications.
Sugar is highly soluble in water, dissolves easily and supports fine crumb texture in baked goods.
Many beverage industry manufacturers use sugar as a main ingredient in beverage products. Sugar can be stored in a silo, super sacks or 50lb kraft bags. The manufacturing process involves dosing a specific amount of sugar to a liquid mixer and preparing an industry-specific or proprietary beverage recipe. The correct amount of sugar (by weight) is added to the mixer by Loss in Weight from the dosing hopper or Gain in Weight of the receiving mixer.
