Effect of ethanol on sucrose solubility and molasses exhaustion

Effect of ethanol on sucrose solubility and molasses exhaustion

International Sugar Journal 103(1236): 547-552

According to a literature survey carried out at the Sugar Processing Research Institute, Louisiana, USA, on molasses exhaustion parameters, the main limiting factor in molasses exhaustion is the massecuite consistency. Several means allow a decrease in the massecuite viscosity. Among these, dilution of massecuite, reheating before centrifugation or addition of chemical products are possible. We decided to study ethanol addition directly in concentrated molasses.
