Did You Know – Powdered Sugar
Do you know what it means, and the difference, between 6-X and 10-X on Powdered Sugar bags?
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. The larger the number the finer the powdered sugar will be.

Good to know! As I am starting to bake more
Awesome Nikki, baking is my favorite thing to do!
Reblogged this on NEW BLOG HERE >> https:/BOOKS.ESLARN-NET.DE.
Thank you so much Michael❣️
Thank you Ned! 💕
Happy Holidays, Diane! Thanks for another great information. Here powdered sugar is mostly used for decorating cakes and cookies. 🙂 Best wishes, Michael P.S.: In the USA you are not so spoiled in packaging design.;-) Here even powdered sugar is packed in design packs.Of course, to sell this more expensive.Lol
Thank you Michael! Of course they do whatever they can to get more money. Much cheaper to make my own and it’s ready in a couple of minutes.
You are such a Godsend on tips and Sage cooking advice
Awe thank you for your kind words! I am having so much fun sharing them. 🥰
Wow! I learned something new today!! Thanks!
Great Charlotte! Isn’t funny how we can look at the bag and see the 10X and not know what it means? It was new for me too!
Interesting, Diane! 😊

Thank you Mitzy!
I had never even noticed the two designations! Thanks, Diane.
I did because years ago I took Wilton cake decorating class and the instructor said it meant how many times it was sifted, wrong! Lol
So cool, thanks Diane.
You’re welcome, I have never seen anything but 10X but I never really buy anything but Domino’s. I don’t even sift it when I make my own. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Bernadette! ❤️
Wishing you lots of happiness in the New Year!
Thank you Bernadette 💕
Merry Christmas and happy New Year.🎄❤️
Thank you Laleh, it was a wonderful Christmas with my family. 💕
Amazing, I’m very happy for you.🌺
So it doesn’t mean sugar level. 😆 that would’ve been my guess.
Haha good guess! I was told years ago, from a Wilton cake decorating instructor, it meant how many times it was sifted. After researching with Domino I learned the real reason. I guess you are suppose to use different fineness for different things like icing.
LOve this great tip!
It’s so simple to make you own and it is just as good as store bought. Thank you Mary❣️
Well Diane, that’s handy to make your own if the supply chain messes up your baking production!
