Dutch Standard


Dutch Standard -

Is a sugar standard used in the custom-house, in conjunction with the POLARISCOPE, to determine the quality of sugar imported and the duty payable. sugar below it in grade is subject to the Raw sugar duty; that above it, the higher rate for Refined sugar. The "16" corresponds to one of a set of sixteen glass bottles or tubes of sugar of various grades of purity and color, originally used by the Dutch government for classing sugars, and generally so employed by other nations also until the introduction of the POLARISCOPE (which see).
