We supply different grades of sugar including ICUM SA 45, ICUM SA 100, ICUM SA 600-1200, BEET SUGAR.
The United States, Brazil, and India are the world’s largest producers of sugar and ethanol products. We source our sugar from sugar factories in these three countries to be used in local and international markets, but mostly focusing on Brazilian producers due to our strong relationships with producers and quota holders.
More than 100 countries around the world rely on sugar from Brazil with key export markets that include China, Russian Federation, India, Iran, and the United Arab Emirates.
Below are some general guidelines on ICUMSA ratings, based on the Brazilian system :
ICUMSA 45 – White Refined Granulated Sugar: The most highly refined form of sugar. This sugar has a sparkling white color, and is the type most often sold direct to consumers in the form of sugar cubes, bags of sugar, and sugar sachets
ICUMSA 100 – 150 – Extra Special White Crystal Sugar: Considered food-grade sugar, this sugar is often used in large-scale baking, drinks making, or the production of other foodstuffs.
ICUMSA 200 – Special White Crystal Sugar: Food-grade sugar suitable for less demanding applications where appearance is not integral to the function of the sugar.
ICUMSA 600-800 – Consumable Brown Sugar: This sugar is consumable by humans, and is generally regarded as being very tasty on porridge.
Any sugar above ICUMSA 800 is not suitable for humans however, and needs to undergo further refining to remove bacteria and other contaminants.
ICUMSA 800-1200 – Very High Polarization (VHP) Sugar.
ICUMSA 1600 – 2000 – Raw Sugar: Suitable for further refining, and in some areas of the world may be incorporated into foodstuffs or beauty products.
ICUMSA 4600 MAX – Very Raw Sugar: This type of sugar has undergone very little refining if any. This is generally regarded as being raw sugar which is then sent to refineries to be refined into any of the above grades of sugar.
