Evaluation of white sugar quality according to European Union directives and Polish standards


The demands for white sugar covered by European Union (EU) directions, Polish Standard, Codex Alimentarius and internal regulations of Coca-Cola Company are presented in the paper. It has been concluded that no uniform quality standards for white sugar exist. Not the all quality criterions covered by the EU directions are taking into account in the Polish Standards and the EU demands are more rigorous than the Polish ones. The sugar consumers, especially the producers of soft drinks, have their own specific demands and appropriate regulations concerning the sugar quality.
