Lars Own Belgian pearl sugar is traditionally used to make the popular Belgian sugar waffles. The sugar softens under the heat of the waffle iron. Add them to the batter and the size and shape of the sugar crystals creates pockets of caramelized sweetness.
Belgian Pearl Sugar is comprised of densely-compacted sugar granules derived from sugarbeets. The Belgian variety is larger than the Swedish variety and resembles pearly white pebbles. The size of the Belgian pearl sugar is what lends itself to caramelized pockets crunch in Liege waffles and the ability to maintain its integrity at higher cooking temperatures.
