It is the most commonly used sugar for altering the flavor and properties (such as mouthfeel, preservation, and texture) of beverages and food.
White refined sugar is the most common form of sugar in North America and Europe.
Refined sugar can be made by dissolving raw sugar and purifying it with a phosphoric acid method or other methods.
