So, what is sugar from beets?

Sugar from beets is a natural sweetener that is derived from the root of sugar beets. Unlike sugar from cane, sugar from beets is a product of the northern hemisphere and has a distinctive flavor profile. The sugar is extracted from the beets through a process that involves slicing the roots into thin strips and then extracting the sugar using hot water. The resulting liquid is then purified and crystallized to create a granular sugar product that is widely used in food and beverage manufacturing. Sugar from beets is a popular alternative to cane sugar due to its lower environmental impact and its unique flavor properties.
