Buyer's guide

Granulated sugar is also available in coarse-grained (called sugar nibs or nibbed sugar) and fine, sieved varieties. A light-golden, raw form of granulated sugar that is only lightly processed is also available and gives a more complex and rounded flavour to dishes.


Keep in a cool, dry cupboard away from heat or moisture to ensure that the grains remain separated.


Use granulated sugar in hot drinks, cereals, baking, jams and marmalades. Sift before use to remove any clumps.
