Abstract

The aim of sugar-beet processors world-wide is to produce pure sugar, at least expense, from the roots which they have purchased and which represent their major manufacturing cost. Although the efficiency of processing depends to a large extent on the factory equipment and the way in which it is utilised, it is the quality of the roots which is by far the most important parameter affecting processing.
