Measuring Quality

The most important factors that affect the quality of the sugarbeet are the sugar content, sugar extractability, and percentage of tare. These factors are what make the sugarbeet fit for maximum sugar extraction.

Sugar Content
Sugar content varies between 15 and 17 percent. The percentage of sugar content found in sugarbeets is one of the most important factors when it comes to processing sugar. Sugar content is influenced by several factors such as growth disorders, weeds, seasonal influences, and harvest periods.

Sugar Extractability
Sugar extractability measures the sugarbeets purity which involves the level of sucrose and the level of impurities in the root.

Percentage of Tare
The amount of soil along with the sugarbeets that are delivered to the factory is known as the percentage of tare.
