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.

  1. 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

    • 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.
