Polarización
Explanation:
Hola. Check this out: "Commercial sugars are classified according to their purity, which is measured in degrees of polarization (pol.) with a polarimeter; purity ranges from 0° pol., signifying a total absence of sugar (as in distilled water, for example), to 100° pol., indicating pure sucrose."
"... de centrífugas en la cristalización del azúcar terminó por producir una ... sino según el grado de polarización (pol) alcanzado." (2nd link).
Hope it helps :)
