Color transfer into sucrose crystallized from mixed syrups [Full subscriber]

Abstract The co-production of sugar from beet thick juice mixed with dissolved raw cane sugar has been undertaken for decades by different sugar companies. However, knowledge and experiences have not been shared, and research data hardly exist. In this work, sugar crystallization from mixed syrups was studied focusing mainly on the inclusion of colorants as a function of raw material variation. Evaporative crystallization was conducted for different mixed syrups. The feed syrups and crystallized sugars were analyzed in detail. It is found that colorants from different origins mutually suppress their inclusion or adhesion. Additionally, it is indicated that mixing levels…
