In print for over a century, it is the definitive guide to cane sugar processing, treatment and analysis. This edition expands coverage of new developments during the past decade--specialty sugars, Reviews: 3. The book then elaborates on electric and turbine mill drives, mill gearing, construction of mills, extraction, milling control, purification of juice, filtration, evaporation, sugar boiling, and centrifugal separation. The handbook is a valuable source of data for engineers involved in sugar cane engineering. Sugar cane (Saccharum spp.) is a perennial grass and one of the few plants which stores its carbohydrate reserves as sucrose. Its economic value lies in the stalks, and the sugar/sucrose they contain after crushing. Sugar cane supplies more than half of the world’s sugar consumption. In Brazil, it is moreover a major component of Size: KB. The model for utilizing sugarcane in feed for ruminants either for beef or milk production is based on the relationship that as the percentage of sugarcane in the diet is increased, average daily weight gain decreased (Pate, ), and milk production of crossbred Holstein of the Centre also decreased according to the relation: y = x + (r=) (SFC ).

In the case of sugarcane, the plant can store the nutrients in the cane up to a year or over. If allowed to grow up to 10–12 months in the field, it will yield more tonnage. Sugarcane may be harvested as it is needed for feed, and by chopping the whole sugarcane finely, it practically all becomes edible as feed. Blackstrap molasses is used primarily as an animal feed additive but also is used to produce ethanol, compressed yeast, citric acid, and rum. Edible molasses syrups are often blends with maple syrup, invert sugars, or corn syrup. Sugarcane is produced and harvested for two purposes: production of cane sugar and use as seed for subsequent plantings. Sugarcane is an established source of sugar and is the current benchmark first-generation feedstock for efficient biofuel production. Sugarcane improvement has traditionally focused on sucrose-yield traits.   The nutritive values of sugarcane is given in the table shown below. In general, sugarcane is low in crude protein and high in it is generally perceived to be low quality fodder, it has high DM digestibility ( to %) and organic matter digestibility ( to %) suggesting its good potential as ruminant feed.

Sugar Cane The basic process Sugar cane must be crushed to extract the juice. The crushing process must break up the hard nodes of the cane and flatten the stems. The juice is collected, filtered and sometimes treated and then boiled to drive off the excess water. The dried cane residue (bagasse) is often used as fuel for this process. “Evocative of Black Mirror, The Feed is a visceral warning about our addiction to technology and shortening attention spans in the form of an optimistic, engaging human perseverance tale.” (Tal M. Klein, author of The Punch Escrow) “A really clever and original s: THE absence of any recent English literature dealing with the sugar cane, which prompted me to compile "Sugar and the Sugar Cane," can no longer be offered as a reason for the production of an extended textbook on cane sugar. During the last decade the treatises of Geerligs, and of Jones and Scard.   THE sugarcane sector plays a significant role in Indian economy as it provides raw material for sugar and industries producing alcohol, paper, chemicals and cattle feed.
