SUGAR PRODUCTION

Sugar production

Sugar, or sucrose to be precise, is made from sugar beet grown in Europe. This involves purified juice being extracted from washed and cut sugar beet in a series of process steps. This juice is then concentrated until the sugar contained crystallises.

This does not involve the use of any additives. The sugar is purified by means of several recrystallisation processes to obtain pure, clear crystals which appear white due to the refraction of light. The sucrose content of these crystals is nearly 100%. Sugar is therefore a high-purity foodstuff with an almost unlimited shelf life if stored appropriately.
