The refined sugar may be obtained by a refining process of the dissolved crystal sugar by controlled crystallization.
Due to the composition of 99.8% sucrose, its purity is high, and therefore, it does not interfere with the final taste of the products. In general, it has a shelf life of 2 years if stored properly.
ICUMSA 45 is known as white sugar, easy to dissolve and more common. In the refinement, chemical additives are added to make the product white and more flavorful.
