Nile Sugar "White Granulated Sugar" is a free-flowing white crystalline food of the highest quality (max 45 ICUMSA) and ultimate purity (99.80%). From February to June each year this sugar is extracted from locally grown sugar beets, and the resulting sugar juice is then purified and concentrated.
At other times of the year, impure raw sugar from overseas cane sugar plantations (e.g. Brazil) is imported to the factory and is converted into the same high-quality Nile Sugar white granulated sugar using a sophisticated sugar refining process.
After the sugar extraction, the remaining sugar beet fiber is pressed, dried and pelleted to produce a highly nutritious animal feed supplement. This is available to farmers and feed manufacturers with an 8-9 mm diameter “Animal Feed Pellet”. It contains an array of natural and valuable ingredients, with a sugar content of 2.5% and a maximum moisture content of 12%. Remarkably, Nile Sugar’s production is 80,000 tons per year.
When no more sugar can be economically crystallized from the factory liquors and syrups, the final liquor is known as “Molasses”. This is stored in large tanks until collected by customers who use it primarily as a feedstock in fermentation processes, where the end products can be baker’s yeast, or industrial alcohol, or even citric acid. Typically, Nile Sugar molasses is available throughout the year with 80% brix, 62% purity and 7.5 ph. Nile Sugar’s production is 66,000 tons per year.
