White sugar and industrial sugar
Consumers most commonly use white sugar. This is the purest form of sugar that mostly consists of pure sucrose. Other minerals and components of the raw material are removed during production. White sugar can be made from both sugarbeet and sugarcane and is available from the wholesale trade in different variations and grain sizes. These include well-known varieties of white sugar such as coarse granulated sugar, caster sugar or icing sugar. White sugar is also available in two different variants that differ in the purity of the crystals. The designations of these products are EU Category I and EU Category II. The latter is also known as industrial sugar – the most popular sugar for corporate customers.
