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 and sealed in 3 1/4 lb. cartons and packed 6 to a case. Open the box and pour into the spinner head-no messy mixing or unsanitary sugar buckets. Inventory is easy and more accurate. Shipping weight is 21 lbs. per case on all flavors.
