Sugar produced from sugar beet

Sugar produced from sugar beet
Every year processing of sugar beets is done between late September and mid-January which represents a biologically conditioned system of harvesting and processing (called “Sugar Beet Campaign”).

These are the most important stages in sugar production:

  • Beet processing
  • Removal of soil, sugar juice extraction, removal of plant material
  • Juice purification / concentration
  • Elimination of substances that do not belong to sugar, water removal
  • Crystallization and storage of sugar
  • Production of pure sugar, storage in large silos under ideal conditions
