About sugar

Where does the sweetness come from?

Rich aromatic coffee and a favourite cake. Desserts we remember from our childhood. Tasty snacks which make the day brighter... Sugar adds that extra sweetness to your life. Let's take a look at its way from the sugar refinery to the table.

Sugar is crystallised sucrose extracted from sugar beet roots. The average beet contains 17% sugar, and it takes about 9 kg of beetroots to make 1 kg of sugar.

Sugar is obtained through crystallization of sucrose contained in sugar beetroots. Basically, the process can be divided into three stages:

Thoroughly washed beetroots are first sliced into thin chips and rinsed with hot water to collect sugar from the strips of the sugar beet. The process is called extraction or diffusion.

The extracted sugar solution is purified using lime milk and carbon dioxide. Then the mixture is filtered and the purified sugar solution thickens. The process is known as juice purification.

To facilitate crystal formation, tiny crystals of ordinary sugar (seed crystals) are added to the purified, thickened sugar solution. As sugar molecules attach to seed crystals, crystals continue to grow and reach standard size. The process is known as crystallisation.

Once the process is completed, sugar crystals can be separated from the solution and dried before cooling and packing.

Today we can choose from a number of sugar varieties: classic white, brown, cane sugar... what is the difference between them?

Brown sugar is made from sugar beet, with cane syrup added. Chemically, these two are identical, consisting of sucrose in 100%. The only difference is in smell and taste.

Some people think (wrongly), that brown sugar is healthier. This belief origins in the past times, when sugar was cleansed chemically.

Why is sugar white? How much does one teaspoon of Cukier Królewski sugar weigh and how many calories does it have? What is the expiry date of Cukier Królewski?
Sugar, just like snow, is in fact colourless. As sugar crystals reflect light, it appears to be white. One teaspoon weighs 4 grams and has 16 calories. Sugar practically never expires as long as it is stored in appropriate conditions (in terms of humidity and temperature).
