Some refineries produce other sugars beside white sugar. These special sugars can include sugars in solid form (as soft sugars, candy, fine grain, extra-fine, icing sugar, areado sugar, amorfo sugar, cassonade) or in liquid form (liquid sugar).
The production of these sugars have different purposes: economical (increase profits per ton of sugar produced); commercial / marketing (presenting a large and varied selection of sugar products ) and technical (producing brown sugars is a way to discharge colourants and other non sugars from the process).
