Sugar Australia supplies a range of liquid sugars, invert syrups and flavour syrups based on cane sugar.LIQUID AND INVERT SUGARS
PREMIUM LIQUID SUGAR is a virtually water-white liquid sucrose syrup produced from bottler’s grade white sugar to meet the exacting standards of the carbonated beverage industry. It is intended for a wide range of beverages, food products and as a source of sucrose in chemical manufacture.
MANUFACTURERS LIQUID SUGAR is a similar product to premium liquid sugar but with a marginally higher maximum level of micro-organisms. It is intended for a wide range of food products and as a source of sucrose in chemical manufacture where colour is critical, but where the marginally higher maximum levels of micro-organisms (compared with Premium Liquid Sugar) can be tolerated.
FINE LIQUID SUGAR is a straw-coloured sugar syrup with small amounts of the naturally-occurring reducing sugars, inorganic ash, other soluble organic matter, and colour of raw sugar origin. It is suitable for use in those products where small residual amounts of reducing sugars, mineral salts, soluble organic matter and colour can be tolerated or may even enhance flavour or other product characteristics.
INVERT SYRUP is pale coloured sweetener prepared by the acid hydrolysis of a solution of white refined sugar. Following hydrolysis (“inversion”), the syrup is partially neutralised before delivery. Invert Syrup contains equal proportions of the invert (reducing) sugars: glucose and fructose. It has a wide application and is particularly useful where high concentrations of invert sugars are required. The crystal-inhibiting characteristics and humectant properties (retention of moisture) means that the shelf life of many products can be extended by the use of Invert Syrup in product formulations. It has a high degree of sweetening power relative to sucrose.
GOLDEN SYRUP is a viscous, golden-red liquid of characteristic flavour and aroma. It is produced by decolourisation of a partially hydrolysed sugar syrup. Manufacturers Golden Syrup is a similar product to Golden Syrup but it is produced at a lower solids concentration and is therefore less viscous which allows it to flow more readily than Golden Syrup. These two syrups are widely used in baking and fillings where their flavour and high sweetening power (relative to sucrose) are especially advantageous.
TREACLE is a viscous dark brown to black liquid that has a stronger flavour and aroma than golden syrup. It is produced from a partially hydrolysed sugar syrup. Treacle's colour and flavour make it suitable for baking applications and for the production of certain confectionery items.
Liquid sugars, manufacturer’s golden syrups and invert syrups are delivered in stainless steel or aluminium tankers which are properly cleaned to ensure a high standard of hygiene. Most of these products are available in 1000 litre pallecons. Invert Syrup is also packaged in 1000 litre intermediate bulk pallecons.
Golden Syrup and Treacle and packaged in 292kg epoxy lined steel drums, 25kg carboy pails and 1000 litre intermediate bulk pallecons.
The availability of other containers can be discussed with the relevant sales office.
Liquid sugar and invert syrup products can be subject to microbial deterioration and proper handling is required to minimise microbial contamination for the atmosphere. Storage life of liquid products depends on storage conditions, cleaning procedures and the type of product. Liquid sugar should be stored in tanks which can be frequently emptied and cleaned to maintain good hygiene standards. The design and operation of tanks should minimise microbial contamination from the atmosphere. Tank volume should be adequate to hold at least a minimum working stock plus a full delivery load.
Exposure to cold temperatures for extended periods could lead to crystallisation of some products, especially liquid sugars and invert syrups. Invert syrup has a nominal shelf life of more than 2 years but to minimise the risk of crystallisation it is recommended that the product be used within 6 months.
Flavour syrups, particularly golden syrup and treacle are quite stable and have a useful life in excess of 2 years and thus do not require a ‘use by date’. There may be some darkening of golden syrup over time.
Not all grades of liquid sugar are available from all delivery sites of Sugar Australia. Customers should discuss their needs with our Customer Service Team on 1300 134 568.
Sugar products are well known ingredients in food and beverage. It is good hygiene practice to avoid direct skin contact with sugar during food and beverage preparation. The information only concerns occupational handling exposures.
Irritating to eyes and skin.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Wear suitable protective clothing, including eye protection (AS/NZS 1337)
If aerosol (mist) generated, and glove (AS 2161) if repeated skin contact.
Rinse eyes with plenty of water.
Wash skin with soap and water.
Collect in containers for disposal in accordance with local authority guidelines.
