It is widely utilised in prepared foods (e.g. cookies and cakes), and is also added to commercially available processed food and beverages. Retail Sugar is further available in granulated as well as powdered form and as light brown and dark brown sugars.

- Production of Sugar (Retail) via Refining and Crystallisation
This Sugar type is obtained via the refining of the raw sugar, where the first step is affination, in which the sugar crystals are immersed in a concentrated syrup that removes their sticky brown coating without dissolving them, followed by their separation from the liquor and dissolution in water. Then, the obtained syrup is either carbonated or phosphated, and both involve the precipitation of fine solids present in the syrup, followed by their filtration, thus leaving behind impurities. After this, the resulting sugar syrup is decolourised and concentrated through boiling, which is further cooled and seeded with sugar crystals, causing the Sugar (Retail) to crystallise out.
