Traditional Sugar Drops of Turin

Definition
Sugar drops are a confectionery product obtained by mixing powdered sugar with thickening agents (tragacanth and gum arabic), as well as aromatic herbs and plants extracts. The mixture obtained from these raw materials is processed with drawing machines to obtain a sheet of pasta, from where the drops will be printed out. The latter are then dried and sieved.

  • Production Area: At the beginning (1857), the production area included the town of Alba and, since 1880, it also includes the town of Turin.

  • Legislative Protection: Sugar drops are classified among the "Traditional Agri-foodstuffs of Regione Piemonte", according to art. 8 of the Legislative Decree 30th April 1998, n. 173 and the Annex to the Decisions of the Regional Council 15th April 2002 n. 46-5823.
