White refined sugar ICUMSA 45 is produced from sound, undecayed, and unfermented sugar cane. The sugar does not contain any foreign matter, taste, or odor. Both dry sugar and sugar in solution has the sweet taste typical of white sugar. Any other specifications not mentioned will meet international specifications. Also, any deviation from the above specs, due to the fact that each lot may be slightly different, will meet international specifications.

 

2. WHITE CRYSTAL SUGAR – ICUMSA right-pic150

White Crystal Sugar, ICUMSA 150, is the recommendation for most customers because it contains fewer chemicals.
It is more available, and costs less than White Refined Sugar, ICUMSA 45. White Crystal Sugar is produced using a crystallization process without chemical refining.
