Granulated Sugar
produced directly from crystalization of the syrup; it forms fairly coarse crystals. It is the most common variety for general use.

Caster(Superfine) or fine sugar
this can be made from crushed and sieved granulated sugar, but in Britain it is mostly boiled to a small crystal

Icing(Confectioner's) Sugar:
granulated sugar milled very finely into a powder, mixed with 3% starch in France(calcium phosphate in Britain,
cornflour in the United States) to prevent it from caking.
