Sugar is refined by a process of extraction or separation. Refined sugar, such as white table sugar or confectioner’s sugar, is commonly made from sugar cane or sugar beets. Through heating and mechanical and chemical processing, every nutrient is removed until only the sugar remains.
The sugar cane and sugar beets are first harvested and then chopped into small pieces. Then the juice is squeezed out and mixed with water. This liquid is then heated and lime is added. Moisture is boiled away, and the remaining fluid is pumped into vacuum pans to concentrate the juice.
At this point, the liquid starts to crystallize and is ready to be placed into a centrifuge machine where any remaining residues or byproducts, like molasses, are spun away. The crystals are then boiled and passed through charcoal filters. After the crystals condense, they are bleached—usually by the use of pig or cattle bones.
During the refining process, 64 food elements are destroyed. All the potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphate, and sulfate are removed. Vitamins A, D, and B are destroyed. Amino acids, vital enzymes, unsaturated fats, and all fiber are removed.
All refined sweeteners such as syrups undergo similar destructive processes. Sometimes processing itself leaves harmful substances in the finished product. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has been found to contain heavy metal residues from processing.
