Manufacturer Description

For the longest period of time, Europe had no access to sugar. The only food ingredient that enabled sweetening of food was natural made honey, and because of that Europe has to wait all up to 13th and 14th century until conflict with the middle east during Crusades brought them closer to the riches of the Arab world and India. Sugar created from sugarcane sucrose was very expensive and hard to make, and because of high demand, European traders and governments tried to find the way to make it themselves in large quantities. Because of that need, New World became haven for countless immigrants who immediately started working on producing sugar, importing African slaves to do hard field work, and building several thousand sugar mills that signified dawn of the industrial revolution in Europe and North America. Sugar beets are similar to the familiar red-rooted garden beet, but are much larger, reaching about 2 to 4 pounds when mature. They tend to have shiny, white roots, and as you might guess, a high sugar content, containing 13 to 22 percent sucrose.
