White sugar specifications and ICUMSA

The specifications for white sugar of Codex Alimentarius, EU Commission and the White Sugar Exchange in London partly do not refer at all to the analytical method to be used or to ICUMSA® methods that are no longer up-to-date. In the trade, the term “ICUMSA 45” is still used, for which there are no specifications at all, and therefore should not be used. In addition to the analytical method – the current ICUMSA® method – attention must also be paid to sampling, for which ICUMSA® has published 2 new standards.
