White Sugars

MANUFACTURERS SUGAR

Bundaberg Manufacturers Sugar is an ungraded refined cane sugar which contains a range of crystal sizes.

Applications

Manufacturers Sugar is suitable in applications where variable crystal size will not affect the final product's quality. It is useful in the manufacture of fondants and liquids.

Storage

Manufacturers Sugar is not readily prone to insect or bacterial attack. To avoid caking, store in a cool, dry environment with minimal temperature variations.

GRADED SUGAR

Bundaberg Graded Sugar is refined cane sugar graded to provide a uniform crystal size.

Applications

Graded Sugar has a uniform crystal size which enhances product texture and consistency. Grading reduces variations in bulk density, therefore assisting processes using volumetric additions to achieve repeatable dosages.

Storage

Graded Sugar is not readily prone to inset or bacterial attack. To avoid caking store in a cool, dry environment with minimal temperature variations.

CASTER SUGAR

Bundaberg Caster Sugar is refined cane sugar graded to provide a small, uniform crystal size.

Applications

Caster Sugar dissolves readily and mixes consistently with other fine granular or powdered ingredients. It is suitable for specialty applications such as baking, powdered drink bases and coatings.

Storage

Caster Sugar is not readily prone to insect or bacterial attack. To avoid caking, store in a cool, dry environment with minimal temperature variations.
