From Farm to Table
The process of producing pure natural sugar begins by grinding sugar cane to extract its juice. The juice is then boiled until it develops into a thick syrup and slowly starts to crystallize. To produce “raw sugar,” the sugar crystals are then spun in a centrifuge, a process similar to the Rinse and Spin cycle on your washing machine. The raw sugar is then shipped to the refinery where it is remelted and filtered/purified to rid it of any remaining non-sugar ingredients and color. Finally, it is crystallized, dried and packaged for consumer consumption.
