The world of sugar production has undergone massive changes in the last decade which have resulted in the emergence of many technological changes as technologists strive to develop more efficient and cheaper processes. This is the first book to be published for several years which describes the current state of sugar technology. It presents the recent developments in beet and cane sugar manufacturing; describes the chemistry of sugar processing and products; and considers trends and future possibilities in sugar production systems and products.The book comprises two sections: beet and cane. The overview of the crop and the production systems that begins each section serves as a framework for the papers that follow. Several papers, i.e. those on sucrose chemistry - are relevant to both sugarcane and sugarbeet. The authors of the papers are all invited speakers well known in their respective fields. The book should be on the shelf of all sugarcane and sugarbeet factories and refiners around the world as well as those companies who are sugar users or who supply goods and services to the sugar industry. It can also be used as a text by universities offering training courses in sugar processing technology.
