Very fine powdered sugar. In industrial food production, it is used where a quick dissolving sugar is required. Powdered sugar is generally mixed with cornstarch, wheat flour, or calcium phosphate to improve its flowing ability, and thus it is not generally used to sweeten beverages, but is used as a garnish.
