What is the difference between jam sugar and preserving sugar?

Preserving sugar contains no additives and dissolves slower than regular sugar which reduces the risk of burning. It also allows any impurities to rise to the top for easy skimming, so it gives a clearer set.
Jam sugar on the other hand, contains added pectin and citric acid to ensure a high quality set with minimum boiling.
