Candi sugar

Candi sugar is a Belgian sugar product commonly used in brewing beer. It is particularly associated with stronger Belgian style ales such as dubbel and tripel.[1] Chemically, it is an unrefined sugar beet derived sugar which has been subjected to Maillard reaction and caramelization. A common misconception is to consider this is the same as invert sugar while actual candi sugar is a subject of multiple complicated chemical reactions happening during the Maillard process.[2]

Also used as a priming sugar, to aid in bottle-conditioning, and carbonation, with the same benefits as listed above.
