Non-GMO Sugar: It’s All About the Consumer

Over the years, America's beet sugar supply has largely transitioned to genetically modified beets. The DNA has been modified so the sugar beets can withstand the application of Round-Up, a commercial herbicide, thus increasing yields. BUT many consumers perceive a health risk in GMO foods. The "simple" solution for food manufacturers whose customers prefer non-GMO ingredients is to use cane sugar instead of beet sugar. Cane sugar available commercially is one crop that has not yet been genetically modified. While some sugar companies are choosing to apply for Non-GMO Project Verified seals for their cane sugar, in reality consumers and brands should know that all refined cane sugar is curr

Go Clean Label With Sugaright: Replacing HFCS With Liquid Sugar

With many consumers concerned about the correlation between the consumption of HFCS and health issues, many food companies are replacing HFCS with sucrose (cane or beet sugar).

The terms of the agreement will effectively reduce domestic competition in the sugar industry resulting in higher prices for food manufacturers and ultimately for consumers. This is not the result we were hoping for and certainly not the outcome desired by our customers. I am proud to say that we spent many hours in D.C. communicating our expectations for a fair and reasonable trade agreement with Mexico. We have stood in solidarity with the interests of our customers and suppliers who depend on access to fairly priced and fai

US Mexico Sugar Deal: What do you say Wilbur???

The consensus from the trading desk at CSC Sugar (parent company of Sugaright) is that a deal will be made between the US Dept of Commerce and the Mexican Sugar Industry. Hopefully, a long period of uncertainty is finally coming to an end. An announcement will be made by Monday, June 5. What do we expect? Direct consumption shipments from Mexico will be cut by over 50% Raw sugar quality will be lowered to max 99.35 polarization Raw sugar shipments must be in bulk vessels. And if there is no agreement, it is expected that the TRQ will be increased to assure adequate supply of raw sugar to the refiners. What is the consequence of this new deal for the food industry? The amount of Mexican sug
