Refined sugar is made from raw sugar that has undergone a refining process to remove the molasses. [1][2] Raw sugar is a sucrose which is made from sugar cane or sugar beet that can not immediately be consumed before going through the refining process to produce refined sugar or white sugar.[3][4] Refined sugar is widely used for industrial needs for higher quality. Refined sugar is purer (ICUMSA below 300) than raw sugar (ICUMSA over 1,500).[5] The level of purity associated with the colors of sugar, expressed by standard number ICUMSA (International Commission for Uniform Methods of sugar Analysis), the smaller ICUMSA numbers indicate that higher purity of sugar.[5]
