Life is Sweet with Austrade’s Beet Sugar
Beet sugar is a natural sweetener that is extracted from the sugar beet root crop during food processing.
Sugar beets are commercially grown for sugar production due to their high concentration of sucrose.
Common applications include Baked Goods, Shelf-Stable Snacks, Sauces & Dressings, Candy & Chocolate, and Beverages.
Austrade’s Beet Sugar is available in both Non-GMO and Organic options, and is always unbleached.
During production processes, beet sugar produces considerably less CO2 and fine particles than cane sugar.
LOW IMPACT ON SOIL
Sugar Beet is a root crop that does not require tillage, which can help to reduce soil erosion and the loss of soil fertility.
SUSTAINABLE, WATER-EFFICIENT CROP
Sugar beet is considered a water-efficient crop by requiring less water to produce it of sugar compared to other sources, such as cane sugar.
VEGAN & VEGETARIAN-FRIENDLY
Unlike cane sugar, beet sugar is produced without bone char, making it the ideal vegan and vegetarian-friendly choice sweetener.
The by-products of sugar beet, such as beet pulp and molasses, can be used as animal feed or as a source of bioenergy, which can help to reduce waste and lower the environmental impact of sugar beet production.
