Sugar

Sale of sugar

Why is brown sugar more expensive than white sugar?
Südzucker makes brown sugar from already saleable white sugar. An additional production stage, using sugar cane syrup, is required in order to produce brown sugar. This additional process makes the product more expensive than white sugar.

What kind of sugar is sold in packets branded as "Gloria" or "Ja" sugar, for example?
