Our Goldtree Special Caster Sugar is made in Mauritius. This caster sugar is special because it has a sparkling golden hue with a subtle buttery taste. In general, caster sugar, also known as baker's sugar or superfine sugar, is a granular sugar which is smaller than regular sugar but coarser than powdered sugar.   As different sugars react to temperature differently and melt at a different rate, special caster sugar should be used in recipes that specially call for it for optimum results. This product is available in 250g and 1kg packets.

This special caster sugar adds a unique colour to your dish that regular caster sugar cannot.  One of the key differences between special caster sugar and regular sugar is the way they react to temperatures and some other ingredients. Food made with special caster sugar can sometimes result in lighter and more buttery flavours as compared to regular sugar. They do not differ much in taste as compared to regular sugar. Special caster sugar also dissolves easily, making it a perfect addition to cold drinks like iced tea and various cocktails. Superfine sugars like special caster sugar incorporate more easily in your product and dissolve faster in creamed mixtures. Special caster sugar should be stored in a cool, dry place away from moisture or heat.
How To UseOur caster sugar should be mixed in evenly as instructed in your recipe. It can be used in a wide variety of baked food.
Suggested RecipesWhen it comes to desserts, this sugar is ideal for creating light and fluffy delights like meringues, soufflés, mousses, puddings, custards, sorbets, cakes and cookies. It is also commonly used as a substitute for white refined sugar in tea, cereals, jam, marmalade and wine making.
AlternativesGood substitutes for caster sugar include brown sugar, demerara sugar, or fine sugar.
