Cane sugar is grown in the tropical areas of the globe where it can be profitably produced. After harvesting, the sugar cane must be processed within 24 hours to avoid sugar loss by inversion of sucrose to glucose and fructose.
Sucrose is extracted from the sugar cane stalk in a cane sugar mill, purified, and crystallized into a tan-colored raw sugar. In a cane sugar refinery, the raw sugar is re-melted, and the sucrose is further decolorized and crystallized.
