Tesco sell it, it's just unrefined white sugar. I think?
No, it is a lovely golden colour.

but would the result be different?
Golden Granulated Sugar

This contains free flowing, unrefined sugar crystals and can be used wherever you would use white granulated sugar, e.g. sweetening drinks, sprinkling on cereals and cooking. This is the perfect sugar for tea and coffee.
We use it all the time, its exactly the same.

btw can I ask what peoples views are of value branded flour for example Tesco value flour? The bigger flour brands cost a lot more.... is there actually a difference in the quality which is noticeable in the baking?
I use it as it's unrefined, I use it in anything that I would use white sugar for, except meringues if I want them a white a possible.
you can use white granulated instead, won't affect the taste, but the colour may be a little paler!........
No difference at all in flour quality.

ah but on the lemon drizzle cake I do, you mix lemon juice and the sugar together, which breaks down the sugar and then you pour it on the cake and it crystallises on the top of the cake and looks white and snowy, maybe the 'golden' would show??
I was wondering this today when I bought flour, Tesco normal plain in a red pack was about £1 but the Everyday stuff was only 42p, that's a big difference, I bought the dearer stuff incase cheaper was crap but wonder if it really is.
what..the? I bake a lot, and find that the more expensive flours arem much more refined, and therefore need less sifting, and produce lighter cakes, so yes, worth the extra cost!.............
Question Author
thanks for all these prompt answers guys :)
hc, you reckon the cheaper be is just as good? I hate wasting money.

but i sometimes get lazy and forget to sift (the bakers on here will have me shot at dawn) 'hides behind my failed sunken cakes' lol
Question Author
i'm tight as a....you know, I do value all the way, but I question it with flour now, hasn't the WI tested this out? if not why not!
Oh what..the?..............bless you!...lol...............
I use the cheap stuff.... and forget to sift... just add half a teaspoon more baking powder if I remember seems to compensate
