Sugar crystal is analogous to process of orange juice concentrate. Both highly concentrated sugar. They should absolutely call this sugar concentrate!!

The real question should be: How did we figure out how to make sugar?

The dundiest of all "food processing" is this, to kill and to destroy a natural ingredient called Sugar. The meeky brainless lowly grass called Sugar Cane is all capable of "Creating" Sugar from Soil and Water and Sunlight and Air. On the other hand the Brainfull, superlative Creatures called Humans, being unable even to absorb nutrients from the soil, are calling this filthy filth substance Sugar!! Instead of clowning around with the Sugar Cane in a Sugar Factory, why don't they Create the Sugar itself just like the Sugar Cane? Do you believe the theory, "What Goes In Is What Comes Out" is true after seeing this so called "Sugar Cane Process" that fools everybody so successfully for so long?? This is the meanest of all processes that man has ever devised to fool farming people who produce Sugar Cane, consumers who buy Crystal Sugar, folks who use and eat Crystal Sugar, into believing that what they consume as Sugar is the product of Sugar Cane and Not of the Sugar Factory?? I worked in a medium sized Crystal Factory for so long till I found our that "What Goes In ..... " theory is all wrong as far as Sugar Cane is concerned!! It is true they put harvested Sugar Cane into the first mill to pulverize it into a pulp and crush it to extract Cane Juice. But all other drama that are following this juice extraction job, so called "Sugar Cane Juice Bleaching" with tonnes of a plethora of filthy and artificial chemicals, are to fool us into believing that Crystal Sugar is what comes out of Cane Sugar Juice is purely the "Purest Form of Sugar" Just ask one simple question. Why don't we eat the direct brown sugar, country sugar and jaggery that is simply boiled out of crushed Cane Juice in open trays by local folks without this much torture? No body will answer your question!! Its because if we do so, then the "Benefits of Cane Sugar" will not go to the Sugar Market and Spirit Market Bloaks!! Farmers are paid on the basis of the Sugar Content of their Sugar Cane production. The factories keep the baggies, the molasses, the sludge and other "wastes" that come out of their Cane Sugar!! Baggies go to paper and board production. The molasses goes to Alcohol production, sludge goes to animal feed production and even the washing water goes to industrial use!! And the resultant money from the "Sugar Cane Processing Technology" goes to the Sugar and Spirit Market Bloaks!! After the crushing of the juice, the actual juice is diverted to factories for making Spirit and Alcohol of all sorts from Beer to Whiskey! A line of pure artificial chemical salts come instead into the process of creating "Glittering White Sugar Crystals" It might even be purely Saccharine. You will tremble from the thought that the chemical salts might be the left over salts used for fertilizer processing. (It itself is another gimmick to sell the stockpiles of left over ammunition nitrates and chlorides from World War II, as "Agricultural Fertilizers", to the same farmers as well !! These Illuminati's!!) Please, please folks switch over to the "age old and filthy and un-hygienically made" Brown Sugar or Black Sugar of Country Sugar or Cane Sugar. Sugar that are made very simply by Sugar Cane Farmer themselves, boiling and evaporating Sugar Cane Juice on open fire and trays. Crystal Sugar has no food energy in it. It is a plain Sweetener. It is a Chemical Salt. It is a very tough artificial substance just like Saccharin of Monalin or other Sweeteners on your body excretion system. Particularly your Kidneys and Urinary System. Because that system alone can expel the very heady doses of Sweeteners out of your blood stream. Most Crystal Sugar consumers will experience urinary irritation due to the excessive presence of these chemical in their urine, who drink lesser water. On the other hand, the Country Sugar has many natural ingredients and food energy in the form of all Sugar mono or poly saccharides as Glucose, Fructose and Sucrose. The Sugar Cane packs into its juice many Natural Minerals, Healthy Sugars and Vitamins. Along with energy giving carbohydrates. Let us eat sugar that comes out of Natural Plants. Not sugars that are made in Chemical Plants

You mean Crystal Sugar? Then, you are saving your body from getting Sulphytated!! Crystal Sugar is purely Saccharin Crystal. Gimmick product coming out of Sugar Cane Mills!! But never from the Sugar Cane!! Thanks. Switch over to that ages old "filthy, un-hygienically made, process-less Country Sugar!!"

I wonder how adding lime and bleaching the sugar are good for health. Jaggery is by far more natural and has not gone chemical treatments.

My question is how in THE FUCK did we even discover sugar if it has to go through all this to be made? Did someone one day just look at a sugar cane plant and say "i am going to beat that thing into pulp and pour chemicals on it while spinning it REALLY fast, just because"?

Gage Cody No, but people know the dangers. Sugar is made out to be harmless and totally fine. It causes or exacerbates a HUGE number of health issues, it absolutely RUINS teeth, and it’s now in EVERYTHING. When kids think water is disgusting because it’s not full of sugar like soda/juice and animals have healthier teeth than 95% of humans, there a BIG problem. If I can’t make a decision as an adult to eat a naturally growing mushroom or even do heroin for that matter, then companies shouldn’t be allowed to ENCOURAGE kids eat/drink sugar every single meal. You almost never see people in third world countries with rotten teeth, they always have bright white and usually straight teeth, just like animals do, yet in first world countries it’s common place. What’s the one difference that would cause that to be the case? Our diet.

crystalizing a single solid component out of an entire organism/plant takes a lot of steps, I'm confused as to how many people are surprised or put off by the chemistry/physics behind it.

Things not mentioned. In Australia rainbow lorikeets often get into the mills at the early stages and eat cane. The measuring of juice for sugar concentration is how pay for the farmer is determined, they track what bins come though and the sample. Depending on what kind of sugar you get determines the level of processing; brown sugar still contains molasses and is sticky, raw sugar has more molasses removed, white is bleached and confectioners/icing sugar are refined from the white offsite.
