Seasonal variations of sugarcane stalk and extraneous matter on pH, color and ash as they affect the production of high quality raw sugars (Part II) [Full subscriber]

There is a trend in the U.S. and world-wide to produce very high pol (VHP) and very low color (VLC) raw sugars for new refineries. This study was undertaken to ascertain the variations in juice quality parameters, known to affect VHP/VLC sugar manufacture and refining, across the LA 3-month processing season (late Sept to Dec) in 2009 and 2010. Juice was extracted from separated stalk (S), growing point region (GPR or immature apical internodes), green leaf (GL), and brown leaf (BL) tissues of three popular sugarcane varieties (HoCP 96-540, L 99-226 and L 99-233), five to six times between Sept…
