SALES – B2B Decorating nib sugars

General

Decorating nib sugars are attractively sized nib sugars coated with an ultra-thin layer of high-quality vegetable fat for moisture protection.

The strength of the moisture-resistant qualities can be selected based on the degree of coating. Less moisture-resistant decorating crystal sugars are sweeter than more moisture-resistant varieties. Both hydrogenated and as unhydrogenated vegetable fats can be used by request. Decorating nib sugars are available in various crystal sizes, from medium to coarse, depending on the required product characteristics.

The most important advantage of decorating nib sugars is that decorated bakery goods maintain their attractive appearance even when exposed to moisture.

Products and applications

Decorating nib sugars are used for the manufacture of fresh and frozen bakery goods.

The particular advantage is in its use with frozen bakery goods. When decorated with decorating nib sugars before they are frozen, bakery goods keep their appetizing look even after thawing, so the products do not need to be redecorated before they are sold.

Nib sugar should be applied before baking to improve adhesion to the surface of the baked product. This applies particularly when using coarse decorating nib sugars.

The various grades differ with regard to their crystal sizes and moisture resistance.
