Superfine Sugar

Superfine sugar is granulated sugar that has been ground into finer crystals than regular granulated white sugar. Also known as caster sugar, it is popular with bakers because the smaller crystals cream very easily into butter and dissolve more readily into meringues and batters. This leads to products that have a finer crumb and lighter texture when finished, a result that is preferred by many bakers. Superfine sugar is specifically called for in recipes that are very light, such as food cakes
You can substitute superfine sugar into recipes that call for granulated white sugar and get better results, but you will not necessarily get as good a result if attempting to substitute regular sugar into a recipe that calls for superfine sugar. This is because recipes that specify superfine sugar to be used often count on the fact that the sugar dissolves so easily to get the best finished product possible.


Bura is sugar heated so that it loses its water of crystallization and then powdered to get rid of any lumps which are formed. In northern India, this form of sugar is taken with rice-Bura, Ghee-Bura combination. To understand it better, it can be said that Bura is Roasted Sugar. The difference in change in taste in Sugar and Bura is same as in the difference in Peanuts and Roasted Peanuts. It is primarily used to make Sweets like Laddus, Panjiri etc at home. In some parts it is also consumed with rice as a Main course or Dessert.

Icing Sugar

Icing sugar is a finely ground sugar made by milling normal granulated sugar into a powdered state. It contains a small amount of anti-caking agent to prevent clumping and improve flow.
In industrial food production, it is used where a quick dissolving sugar is required. Domestically, it is principally used to make icing or frosting and other cake decorations. It is often lightly dusted onto baked goods to add a light sweetness and subtle decoration.
