Beet sugar

Beet sugar

Beet sugar comes from the sugar beet plant, a root vegetable related to beetroot and chard.

Beet sugar is made by a process that involves finely chopping the beet to extract the natural sugar juice. The juice obtained from the plant is then purified and heated to create a concentrated syrup, which is used to create granulated sugar.

This juice, once purified by eliminating the non-sugar substances dissolved in it, is completed by means of a lime reagent, reaching a purity of between 85 and 91%. Subsequently, it is concentrated so that the sugar crystallises by supersaturation. This evaporation is carried out by means of low pressure steam, obtaining a juice called syrup, with a purity of 90%.

This syrup is concentrated, producing crystals to which a small proportion of sugar powder is injected.
