Sulfated Ash of Various Sweeteners and Syrups

Download File
Tight specifications about the amount of sulfated ash that can be present in sugars and syrups are maintained to ensure quality. Most standards define that ash content cannot exceed 0.015% in refined granulated sugar. Various research for some sugar products points to a correlation between ash content and color1; color being one of the most important perceptions of quality by consumers. While some ash may be added during processing of sugar variants, ash can also result from processing equipment erosion, improper handling, and insufficient washing. The Phoenix BLACK™ Sulfated Ash provides a safe, automated, and reliable alternative and meets all muffle furnace requirements.
