Jam Sugar

Jam Sugar is a sugar for preserving which has added citric acid and pectin, making it good for use with low-pectin fruits when making preserves.

Some varieties also contain sorbic acid to help act as a preservative for the preserve you are making.

Storage Hints

Jam Sugar has a shorter storage life than regular sugar owing to the pectin and citric acid.
