Gold Medal Flossugar is made from a special sugar - not too fine, not too coarse. Colors have been "vividized" so that you get a bright color, but color concentrations do not exceed the limits set down by Food & Drug Administration's GMP Directives. Flossugar is packed in sealed 3 1/4 lb. cartons. Open the box and pour into the spinner head-no messy mixing or unsanitary sugar buckets. Inventory is easy and more accurate.
