About Pure Cane Confectioners Sugar
What is confectioners' sugar?
What is the difference between 6X and 10X confectioners' sugar?
The “X” designations are derived from the mesh sizes of the screens used to separate powdered sugar into various sizes. Thus, 6X would have a larger particle size, whereas 10X would have a smaller particle size.
How should I store my confectioners' sugar?
Store confectioners' sugar in a cool, dry location (not the refrigerator). When it gets moist, it develops lumps. And because of its physical properties, it may absorb strong odors if left unsealed. Confectioners' sugar, however, cannot adequately be restored if it forms lumps, because of the cornstarch used in the sugar.
