Südzucker organic sugar is made from sugar beets grown according to a traceable environmentally sound program and is harvested during an organic sugar campaign. The majority is used in the production of baby food and organic baked goods. Südzucker recently introduced a 500 g package of organic sugar for household consumption. It is ideally suited for sweetening coffee, tea and other hot beverages, for baking and cooking, as well as to enhance the flavor of many foods.
Fructose is a natural carbohydrate contained in many fruits and can be extracted in a number of ways. Südzucker fructose is derived from the sucrose contained in sugar beets and is about one-third sweeter than normal household sugar. It dissolves faster and is therefore well-suited for cold foods and drinks. It really is true: the colder, the sweeter. Another attribute of fructose is that it enhances the natural flavor of fruits.
As recently as the beginning of the 20th century, sugar was sold almost exclusively in this form and had to be manually ground before use; for example, for baking. Nowadays, it is very much in demand during the cold season for use in mulled wine and punch.
