Our COMPRI® Sugar range comprises a selection of directly compressible sucrose products with special properties. The raw material is very finely ground sucrose (EU I quality), with or without binders and can be used with other ingredients such as flavourings or active ingredients, pressing agents, and dyes.
Thanks to our unique fluid bed agglomeration production technology for COMPRI® Sugar, we provide you with high-quality, sucrose-based solutions, designed to be processed into compressed goods, tablets and instant products. Südzucker is the only producer who offers a fluid bed-agglomerated sugar for direct compression without any binder.

Our unique agglomeration process sets us apart. Südzucker COMPRI® Sugar has completely different physicochemical properties and structure compared to regular sugar crystals. Even though the main component is sucrose, its amorphous form produces many benefits:
Benefits of COMPRI® Sugar
