Our Pearl sugar (also known as nib sugar and hail sugar) is a product of refined white sugar and is 100% sucrose in composition. The hard, opaque white pearls come in various sizes and do not melt at temperatures typically used for baking. The pearls are made in a unique extrusion process and imported directly from Belgium.
Pearl sugar in general is also known as pärlsocker in Sweden, and as perlesukker in other Scandinavian countries, except Finland, where it is called helmisokeri or more commonly raesokeri ("hailstone sugar").
A complete range of pearl sizes from 0.8 mm 15 mm has been developed to meet your different needs according to your applications.
In Scandinavia, pärlsocker is used extensively to decorate various pastries and confections, cookies, especially on top of plain Swedish bulle or Finnish pulla cakes, muffins and buns, such as kanelbullar (cinnamon buns) and chokladbollar.
In Germany it is known as Hagelzucker and traditionally used on Christmas cookies and cinnamon buns.
In Belgium, it is used in Liège waffles, while in Friesland it is used in sûkerbôle (sugar bread).
