10x and super fine sugar are 2 completely different things. Superfine looks just like regular sugar you put in coffee and tea. 10x sugar is also known as powdered sugar because it looks like talcum powder. (11/18/2009)

The very fine sugar like powder we call it icing sugar. The The little coarse sugar we call castor sugar. The sugar we use for tea and coffee is coarse. (03/25/2010)
