Caster Sugar |Castor Sugar| Gula Caster
✔️Same taste as regular white sugar.
✔️Keep in a cool, dry place away from moisture or heat.
✔️Suitable for culinary & baking use
✔️Ideal for meringues, caster sugar is used in baking, desserts, drinks and cocktails.
It adds more volume to baked goods, and gives them a lighter texture.
✔️Although caster sugar is finer than granulated, it retains some of the rough texture of sugar, unlike confectioners' sugar, which is more like a powder. Caster sugar's consistency falls in the middle between granulated and powdered sugars.
✔️It melts faster and incorporates into sauces, puddings, and bases more quickly than regular granulated sugar.
✔️If a recipe calls for caster sugar, regular sugar can be substituted, but the result may be grainy. Because caster sugar crystals are so fine, they dissolve quickly, making the sugar particularly suitable for sweetening cold drinks or cocktails.
