The only kind I use. Never a problem.

I use it all the time and only have one minor complaint about it, but considering it's half the price of anything I can get in the grocery store, I don't mind a bit. When I'm sifting it, sometimes I have issues with hard granules that can't be sifted but I just sift the rest then shake those bits out. It's not much of a problem for me seeing as I make sure to sift it no matter what anyway. I think it's a great deal.

After seeing the 10x thread the other day I made a point of reading the packages of all of the PS inthe stores yesterday. I cannot find anywhere on any package where it states that it is 10x. What am I missing?

If it doesn't say it is 10X, then it usually isn't. I like the convenience of the p/s from Costco, but I hate the fact I HAVE to sift it for every batch of icing I make.

What's the 10X represent? Haven't heard of this before.

In our Costco (in Hamilton, Ontario) the cost of PS is pretty much the same as in the grocery store - and it only comes in 1 kg (2.2 lb) bags. Haven't had a Costco membership in years - I spend way too much when I go there for just a few things. icon_redface.gif

I did notice it does have cornstarch in it, but I also never read the back of my Domino PS to see if that had it too...

I thought pretty much all powdered sugar had cornstarch in it for texture or to help prevent caking or who knows what. I thought that's why it tasted different from super fine granulated sugar.

She got it right.

I use Costco powdered sugar. When I need it finer, I use the food processor.

My Mom, used to put regular sugar in the blender, when she needed powdered sugar.
