Sugar production

Sugar production

… Refining means “cleansing” by means of an extraction or separation process. Refined sugar is obtained as follows – they take natural products with a high sugar content and remove all elements until sugar remains pure.

… Sugar is usually obtained from sugar cane or sugar beets. Through heating and mechanical and chemical processing, all vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, enzymes and, in fact, all nutrients are eliminated – only sugar remains. Sugar cane and sugar beet are harvested, cut into small pieces and squeezed out all the juice, which is then mixed with water. This liquid is heated and lime is added to it.

The mixture is boiled, and from the remaining liquid, a concentrated juice is obtained by vacuum distillation. By this time, the liquid begins to crystallize and it is placed in a centrifuge and all impurities (such as molasses) are removed. The crystals are then dissolved by heating to the boiling point and passed through carbon filters.

After the crystals have condensed, they are given a white color – usually with the help of pork or beef bones.

… In the process of purification, 64 food elements are destroyed. Sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphates and sulfates are removed, as well as vitamins A, D and B.

All amino acids, enzymes, unsaturated fats and all fibers are eliminated. To a greater or lesser extent, all refined sweeteners such as corn syrup, maple syrup, etc. are treated in a similar way.

Molasses are chemicals and nutrients that are by-products of sugar production.

…Sugar producers are aggressively defending their product and have a powerful political lobby that allows them to continue trading in a deadly product., which in all respects should be excluded from the diet of all people.
