ICUMSA 45 sugar is the worldâs leading consumer sugar. A highly refined sugar product, it is easily recognizable by its distinctive sparkling white color and pure sucrose taste. ICUMSA 45 is perpetually in high demand as it is the safest form of sugar, due to the fact that the refining process by which it is created removes the bacteria and contaminants often present in raw sugars which can pose a threat to human health.
According to the Brazilian SGS method of testing, ICUMSA 45 sugar is the highest quality sugar available on the market today. The quality of sugar is determined by a system devised by ICUMSA (International Commission For Uniform Methods Of Sugar Analysis), which is an international body that has sought to standardize the measurements which are used to describe sugar, so that no matter where the purchaser is located, or where the sugar is sourced, an understanding of the type and quality of the sugar can be gained simply by quoting a rating, such as ICUMSA 45.
Sugar is tested according to a scale of whiteness. A simplistic way of looking at ICUMSA ratings is to say that the more white a sugar is, the more refined it is. ICUMSA 45 sugar is a sparkling white, highly refined sugar, suitable for human consumption and use in a wide range of food applications.
