All India one day seminar on “Advances in Sugar Grading and Food Safety Standards to Produce Quality Sugar”

Belgavi: The Food Safety and Standards Act of 2006 regulates and monitor the manufacture, processing, distribution, sale and import of food to ensure its safety and wholesomeness for the consumers. With growing urbanization, rising standard of living and changing lifestyles has led to less sugar being consumed directly at households and more and more food being prepared at food processing units. Because of health and hygiene issues, the consumer today is keen to know the way food including sugar is produced, processed and marketed to them.

Here, sugar grading plays a very important role in defining sugar quality with respect to consistency of grain size and may fetch better price in market with even grades. For bulk end sugars of sugar, dry mixing of sugar is energy efficient compared to wet process. For dry mixing process, consistency in sugar grain size is very important. Efficient grading also ensures optimization of product output and recycles of seeds.
