The translucent cup is alpha nucleated, the white cup is beta nucleated. There is no white pigment in the white cup. The whiteness is due to micro aids produced during thermoforming. Beta nucleation leads to thicker and more uniform sidewalls allowing the part to be low in weight. There are additional cost savings by eliminating the need for white pigment.
