Raw Beet Sugar

Naturalness, regionality and less processed or less refined products and raw materials have become more important for European consumers. With our Raw Beet Sugar, we offer to food producers a solution to create sweet products that fulfil the needs of consumers, such as baked goods, chocolate or cereals / cereal bars or for savoury applications like barbecue sauces and other condiments.

Meaning of ‘RAW’ in Raw Beet Sugar

Our Raw Beet Sugar is the result of a dedicated production process where we conserve original elements of the sugar beet resulting in a less refined beet sugar. This means that it is closer to sugar beet than white sugar, which is noticable by its light brown colour and more aromatic taste.

Consumers are increasingly looking for products where natural ingredients or products are derived from a natural source. Naturalness is also a key driver when it comes to choosing healthier products.

Educated Consumer

Consumers are also increasingly interested in what their food contains. They also want to know what the ingredients mean and where they come from. They read the information on the product packaging, such as the list of ingredients, claims etc., to decide whether to buy a product or not. It is therefore important to list the ingredients in detail – such as cane sugar or beet sugar instead of sugar.
