Beet Pulp Pellets

In addition to processing pure beet sugar, sugar factories produce a co-product known as dried beet pulp. Pulp is the dried fiber residue left after most of the sugar has been extracted from the sliced beets. Dried beet pulp is typically sold as either a shred (with or without molasses added) or in pellet form. This excellent feed is not only valued by dairy farmers as a stimulant to milk production but is also widely used in the feeding of beef cattle and sheep and in the production of pet foods.

Molasses, SMS, Raffinate

Another co-product from beet sugar processing is beet molasses.  Beet molasses is also the basic raw material for the chromatographic separation process, which is a method of extracting additional sugar from the molasses. Beet molasses is used for production of yeast, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, as well as in the production of mixed cattle feeds. It is acknowledged as being one of the best mediums for liquid cattle feed.
