Caster Sugar, or "Baker's Special," is named after its ability to fit through a sugar caster, a form of sieve. Its fine crystals allows for more air to be incorporated into a recipe, ideal for meringues or light, fluffy cakes. It is also helpful in mixing into cold liquids as it dissolves faster than larger granules. Sugar, or "sucrose," is derived mostly from sugarcane and sugar beets through extraction before it is processed into the refined sugar that is most commonly used today.

Refined sugar was only accessible to the wealthy before the 18th century. The British dominated the sugar industry and were driven to many tropical countries and the Americas where sugarcane plantations became a major overseas commodity, introducing the trade triangle that intensified slave trade. In 1801, the first European beet sugar factory was established, making domestic production popular and accessible to the masses and inevitably making sugar a household staple.

Today, roughly 70% of sugar is derived from sugar cane in tropical countries and 30% is derived from beets, mainly in Europe and North America.
