So, what is beet sugar?

Beet sugar is a natural sweetener extracted from sugar beets, a root vegetable that contains high amounts of sucrose. Unlike cane sugar, which is extracted from sugar cane, beet sugar is produced using a similar process but has a distinctive taste that is less sweet and slightly earthy. It is commonly used in baking, confectionery, and beverages and is a popular alternative to cane sugar due to its affordability and availability. As a non-GMO and gluten-free ingredient, beet sugar is also a favorite among health-conscious consumers looking for natural sweeteners to add to their diets.
