Abbreviation for “International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analyzes”. “International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analyzes”. The most striking quality feature from sugar is his colour which can range from an almost pure white to yellow-brown tones. In order to be able to classify the reflection color of white sugar, the ICUMSA has defined a color type scale that covers a range from 0 to 6. Color type 0 corresponds to a sugar of the lowest color, color type 6 to a strongly colored sugar. This standard has recently been adopted in Germany for the determination of the sugar content in the grape used and resulted in a reorientation for the Oechsle degrees with regard to Most weight (Oe).
