Brazilian Sugar

We are direct to manufacturers in Brazil. As such, our prices are one of the most competitive around.

Brazilian sugar is the most plentiful sugar in the world, due to the fact that Brazil is the largest producer of sugar in the world. Every year Brazil produces up to thirty million tons of sugar, much of which is sold offshore. The majority of Brazilian sugar is VHP raw sugar, which is almost always produced for export and subsequent refining in other countries. A smaller amount of ICUMSA 45 sugar is also produced both for local consumption and international export. Brazilian sugar exports make up 40% of total global sugar exports, which explains how Brazilian sugar comes to be found in baked goods, drinks, and other foodstuffs the world over.

Producing Brazilian Sugar

Brazilian sugar is grown largely in the Sao Paulo region of Brazil. Due to increased demand for sugar cane ethanol, sugar cane related production has grown so rapidly in this region that the Brazilian authorities have been forced to suspend the issuing of new licenses for sugar mills pending investigation into the environmental impact of such large scale sugar cane growing and processing.

Interestingly, the traditional region for sugar production is not in the highly fertile Sao Paulo area, but in the north east of the country, in the Pernambuco and Algolas regions. The first sugar plantations and mills were founded in these states by the Dutch, who used slave labor to plant, harvest, mill and process sugar cane into sugar. Today there are still numerous sugar plantations and mills in this region in spite of the fact that it is considerably less fertile than the Sao Paulo region, not to mention harder to harvest due to hilly terrain.

All sugar produced in Brazil is produced from sugar cane, of which there are many varieties. Brazilian sugar mills have invested great amounts of time and money into developing new strains of sugar cane which contain greater amounts of sucrose, are hardier than previous strains, and which can produce high sucrose crops for several generations before a field must be replanted.

Brazilian sugar mills are renowned for their efficiency, and in general, Brazilian sugar mills place great emphasis on not wasting any resources associated with the sugar milling process.
