History

The history of sugar and cane juice is parallel to each other. The cultivation of sugarcane is ancient, probably originating in New Guinea about 10,000 years ago. From there, it spread throughout the globe, being prominently grown in India. Around the 8th century, the Moors changed the way the world used to see sugarcane. They learned the secrets of processing sugarcane into sugar from Indians. From Spain, the sugar began its expansion into Europe. They produced sugar varying in color, size, form and molasses content based upon the processing techniques used and the preferences of the region in which it was produced. Christopher Columbus introduced sugar to the New World with the European countries quickly introducing sugarcane cultivation into their colonies in South America and the Caribbean Islands. In the last few centuries, a large number of sugar refineries were built for the widespread production of refined sugar. Recently in the United States, people have shown an increased interest in more natural and less processed form of sugar cane, due to an increased focus on whole foods and nutrition. Brazil is the world’s leading producer of sugarcane, followed by India, China and Thailand.
