Figure of Powder sugar

Various foods use a powder sugar which is ground granule sugar. The amount of coarse particle decides the grade of powder sugar. Generally speaking, 93.5% < 200Mesh (75 micron) are suitable size for confectionery usage. Sometime more fine powder called silk sugar is demanded. Both sugars can give a creamy frosting or icing on cakes or some pastries. But these fine powders cause problems in the manufacturing process and in use. Due to the high specific surface area, the fine powder tends to cake easily generates, absorbs moisture, and easily dust. To prevent these problems, a coarser powder sugar around 100-150 micron is still generally used. The powder sugar has following advantages.

– Good for large scale process automatic conveying
– Free-flowing
– Very fine but dust fre
