What is Sugar?

Sugar is a versatile ingredient derived from sugar beet or sugar cane plants, with various types crafted through meticulous processing techniques. Beginning with the extraction of sugar juice, the process involves cleaning, crystallizing, and drying to yield different sugar varieties. These include granulated, powdered, or superfine sugars, offering unique functional properties suitable for diverse applications. Additionally, sugar color ranges from white to brown, impacting flavor profiles and moisture levels.

Top Applications

In bakery applications, sugar serves as more than just a sweetener; it’s a key ingredient that contributes to texture, flavor, and browning. When incorporating sugar into bakery recipes, it’s essential to consider its various forms and properties. Granulated sugar adds sweetness and moisture to baked goods like cookies and cakes, while powdered sugar is ideal for dusting over pastries or creating smooth icing and glazes. Brown sugar contributes a rich flavor and chewy texture to treats like brownies and cinnamon rolls.
