Fine ground crystal sugar is used as icing sugar in baking and confectionery. Powdered sugar, or refined type, plays an important role in defining the volume and texture of foods. For example, sugars provide volume to cakes and cookies. The combination of sugar with a gelling agent (e.g. pectin) is responsible for the gelatinous texture.
In baked goods, sugar raises the temperature of starch gelatinization, trapping air bubbles and providing a light texture to cakes. They also provide the basis for yeast fermentation. Sugar is a humectant, which is important in food preservation and also affects texture. Sugars also lower the freezing point, which is important for producing softer ice creams, and raise the boiling point, which is important in candy making.
