- SUGAR CANE & PRODUCTS: PART V - PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED FROM SUGAR-CANE JUICE

This series' first issue outlined the importance of sugar-cane as Economic Catalyst to developing. The current delivery deals briefly with the several products that derived from fresh sugar-cane juice.

Sugarcane contains about 70% water, in which sucrose and other substances are held in solution, forming about 88% by weight of juice in the stem. The remaining 12% represents the insoluble cane fibre component.]

Sugarcane juice is used for making white sugar, brown sugar (Khandsari), Jaggery (Gur) and ethanol. The main byproducts of sugar industry are bagasse and molasses.

Molasses, the chief by-product, is the main raw material for alcohol and thus for alcohol-based industries. Bagasse is also a good raw-material to manufacture paper industry. Besides, some sugar mills use bagasse as fuel to generating power.

Sugarcane juice can be concentrated to produce a liquid that contains high level of "natural" policosanols - an ingredient that helps lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol in blood. This is a business opportunity to setup national pharmaceuticals firms in African countries. The market is huge worldwide, with a ready market in African countries.

There are American patents that cover products manufactured from sugarcane and sugarcane juice. Visit this link and make research

- BROWN CANE SUGAR VERSUS WHITE SUGAR

Most people think that a pack of sugar is similar to the other one as far as it is white sugar or brown sugar. That is not true because sugar can be manufactured either from beet root or from sugarcane. And true unrefined brown sugar is manufactured from sugarcane and is brown through and through. In the contrary, brown sugar produced from beet and from refined sugarcane are just coated with molasses and when you do rub a sugar cube thus produced, it is white inside.

Unrefined Muscovado (brown sugar)Further, unrefined brown cane sugar (see picture at left side of this paragraph) is a natural combination of sugar and molasses, produced without any added "artificial" colorings and flavorings, that also contains trace minerals and nutriments (present in sugarcane.) Therefore, it is healthier and more nutritive than refined sugar (from beet or sugarcane.)

White sugar, in the contrary, is pure carbohydrate, 99.5% sucrose. It is stripped of all its natural components: water, minerals and vitamins. These empty calories provide absolutely no nutritional benefit. In short, it had been purified to become white and more appealing (commercially) to consumers. A non-necessary purification process, which increases costs of production.

The fact is, the more refined our food is, the more our bodies have to compensate by drawing the missing nutrients from other sources. These can be other foods eaten at the same time, or from the body's own stores in tissues and bones.

Therefore, when we eat refined (white) sugar, B vitamins, minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus and other nutrients are "pumped" from our own healthy cells - for compensation sake.

In other words, as the alkaline minerals are depleted from the body, one becomes more and more acidic. The bones weaken progressively as calcium is constantly withdrawn from them to accommodate our sweet tooth and the resulting decline in the body's pH (acidity).

One reason sugar gives us intense cravings is that our bodies are looking for these missing nutrients.
Then, we often look for more sugar to fix it, which makes the cycle worse and leads to perpetual snacking and binges. It also leads to chronic over-stimulation of the endocrine system, which detects that the body has just loaded up with calories, but can't find the nutrients that should naturally accompany them. [Source]

It is ironic that unrefined brown cane sugar is labeled as the "poor man's sugar" when it should be the other way round. White sugar has truly no nutritive value and is the one that should be labeled as the "commercial-influenced man's sugar."

One can say that a country, which population are fed with unrefined sugarcane brown sugar would have better chance to remaining healthier. And as we know, health is the prerequisite to developing.

Based on data exposed in previous delivery about a small-scale sugarcane juice production facility, it is possible to setup medium-scale operations to produce unrefined sugarcane brown sugar - evaporating sugarcane juice. The process is a simple one that is used since ages in Asian countries (China and India) to provide a healthy and nutritive product to the populations.

Next delivery (June 15, 2007) will introduce a medium-scale operation to produce unrefined brown sugar - from sugarcane juice.
