sugar. for our little treats.

Sugar is a key ingredient in the making of sweet foods as it delivers sweet taste, as it enhances their taste an the one of other ingredients, while also providing structure and texture balancing our treats’ taste experience.

How we process our sugar.

At Kinder we mostly use sucrose in our recipes, we use both beet and cane sugar. Both beets and sugar canes are harvested and delivered to our suppliers’ processing factories where their juice rich in sugars is extracted. This juice is then filtered and heated to remove water so that small crystals are formed and become bigger and more numerous as the product is cooled.The crystals are then separated from the syrup in a centrifuge, washed and dried to become the sugar we all recognize and use every day.
When the sugar arrives in our factories, we conduct thorough quality tests to verify the size and purity of the crystals before we use them in our recipes.

Sucrose is used in all Kinder recipes. We use also other sugars to give an extra special touch to some of our products, such as dextrose in Kinder Pinguì and in the decoration of Kinder Paradiso and glucose syrup in Kinder Schoko-Bons. We also use glucose-fructose syrup, in small quantities in Kinder Delice, Kinder Paradiso and Kinder Pinguì, where it helps in making the dough even softer.

Sourced with respect to environment and communities
