 Eating white sugar is equivalent to eating industrial acid and lime?


At present, Chinas white granulated sugar production process mainly uses sulfurous acid method or carbonation method, no matter what kind of production process, the production process will not add starch or lime starch mixture.

An article entitled Safety of Sugar for Eating circulated on the Internet recently, saying that if you eat 10 kilograms of white sugar, you will eat a kilogram of acid, sugar added to thelime starch mixtureis equivalent to eating lime into the stomach.

Zhu Yi, an associate professor at the School of Food, China Agricultural University, told reporters that doing so would increase costs and would not be worth it. Its totally unfounded rumors.

A lot of acid and alkali will seriously affect the taste.

The scary thing about soft sugar and granulated sugar is that it takes oxalic acid to make soft sugar, and the best acid is alfalfa grass on the grassland. Alfalfa is now much more expensive than grain. Sugar factories are then extracted from vegetables and plants. It is detestable that many manufacturers are too fond of eating sour and expensive food. That is, you eat 10 catties of white sugar, you will eat a catty of acid, which is a few industrial acid, depending on how black the manufacturer.

In this regard, Zhu Yi, associate professor of the Food College of China Agricultural University, said that all the current white sugar production process, white sugar purity is very high, there is no possibility of a large number of acid, alkali situation, this is completely unreasonable rumor. The latest national standard GB/T1445-2018 stipulates that the total sugar content of the lowest grade soft white sugar is also above 97.9%. It is impossible to have such a large number of acids and bases, and a large number of acids or bases will seriously affect the taste.

White sugar mixed with lime and starch?

Doing so is not worth the candle.

White granulated sugar should be added to the starch, but now the starch purity is poor, the shelf life is less than a year, said the article, lime starch mixing this move greatly extended the shelf life of white granulated sugar, completely avoided the problem of re-crystallization into lumps.

Li Kai, director of the Engineering Research Center of the Ministry of Education for Sugar Industry and Comprehensive Utilization, pointed out that starch will hydrolyze when it is gelatinized by heat and hydrolyzed by acid. If starch is added to the production of edible sugar, it will increase the difficulty of cleaning and affect the crystallization of sucrose. It will not only increase energy consumption but also reduce the sugar yield. Therefore, this approach is not worth the candle.

It is understood that Chinas white granulated sugar production process mainly uses sulfurous acid method or carbonation method, regardless of which production process, the production process will not add starch or lime starch mixture.

Experts remind: distinguish white sugar has 3 Zhao Li Kai introduced, white sugar production generally to beet or sugarcane as raw materials, after extracting sugar juice, cleaning treatment, boiling crystallization, honey to get fine grains of white granulated sugar, spraying a small amount of conversion syrup, soft soft soft soft soft white sugar. The production of white sugar in China is restricted by the product quality standards and production technical regulations, and the safety is guaranteed. He reminds consumers that when choosing and purchasing sugar, they can use the following methods to judge: a look, a good white granulated sugar, soft white sugar color white, uniform particles, luster. Two Wen, white sugar and soft sugar smell sweet and fragrant. Three touch with the hand when the sugar is very loose, there will be no sugar grains dipped in the hand, indicating that the water content is low, not easy to deteriorate, easy to preserve.

Experts advise: there are 3 ways to identify good sugar.

Li Kai introduced that the production of spongy sugar generally uses beet or sugarcane as raw material, after extracting sugar juice, cleaning treatment, boiling and crystallizing, and separating honey to get fine granular sugar, then spraying a small amount of conversion syrup to get soft spongy sugar. The production of white sugar in China is restricted by the product quality standards and production technical regulations, and the safety is guaranteed.

Two Wen, white sugar and soft sugar smell sweet and fragrant.
