Beet Sugar Handbook
by Mosen Asadi

The first all-in-one reference for the beet-sugar industry Beet-Sugar Handbook is a practical and concise reference for technologists, chemists, farmers, and research personnel involved with the beet-sugar industry. It covers:

  • Basics of beet-sugar technology
  • Sugarbeet farming
  • Sugarbeet processing
  • Laboratory methods of analysis

The book also includes technologies that improve the operation and profitability of the beet-sugar factories, such as:

  • Juice-softening process
  • Molasses-softening process
  • Molasses-desugaring process
  • Refining cane-raw sugar in a beet-sugar factory

Beet Sugar Handbook ends with a review of the following:

  • Environmental concerns of a beet-sugar factory
  • Basics of science related to sugar technology
  • Related tables for use in calculations

Beet Sugar Handbook is user friendly and practical in its presentation of relevant scientific and mathematical concepts for readers without a significant background in these areas. For ease of use, the book highlights important notes, defines technical terms, and presents units in both metric and British systems. Operating problem-solving related to all stations of sugarbeet processing, frequent practical examples, and given material/energy balances are other special features of this book.
