For a trouble-free sugar production

An all-in package for the sugar industry

Non-sugar substances, especially polysaccharides, can seriously impair sugar processing and the final sugar quality in many ways. The concentration of polysaccharides, like starch and dextran, in raw materials is affected by numerous factors, especially climate and harvesting methods play an important role.

SternEnzym addresses these recurring and varying issues with individual consulting and technical expertise. In order to ensure trouble-free processing and a high-quality end product, we’ve developed an all-in package for the sugar industry. This way, SternEnzym can assist you with the following tools for the various areas of the sugar industry (beet, cane and refinery).

  • Sugazym
    Reduces the polysaccharide-induced increase in viscosity and sugar crystal malformation during processing.

  • Sugafloc
    As a flocculant, aids in the clarification of sugar juices and so helps reduce colour.

  • Sugafoam
    Prevents foaming in the process.

The use of enzymes represents a reliable and natural way to minimise viscosity issues and crystal malformation. This is due to the fact that enzymes are biocatalysts derived exclusively from natural sources. To achieve a solution-oriented and cost-effective use of our enzymes, we use a combination of scientific research and industrial practice. This lets us provide reliable and individual advice to our customers.

Enzymes for sugar beets

Sugazym against polysaccharides

Our solution for the sugar beet industry

Microbial polysaccharides like dextran and levan cause problems during the sugar manufacture from beets. They do not naturally occur in sugar beets but are formed after harvesting by irreversible microbial processes. Their presence results in a higher viscosity and sugar crystal malformation, which lead to declines in quantity and quality.

The addition of Sugazym DX L and Quickmove can eliminate viscosity issues early on and prevent sugar crystal malformation.

Advantages of Sugazym

  • Higher throughput
  • Better filtration and crystallisation
  • Better production results
  • Improved sugar quality

Enzyme systems for the sugar beet industry

  • Sugazym Quickmove (enzyme mix)
  • Sugazym DX L (dextranase)

Sugazym against polysaccharides

Our solution for the sugar cane industry

In the processing of sugar cane and refining of raw sugar, microbial (dextran and levan) as well as plant polysaccharides (starch) can have very negative effects on the process and the sugar quality. These effects result in a higher viscosity and sugar crystal malformation, which reduce quantity and quality.

The addition of Sugazym enzyme systems can eliminate viscosity issues early on and prevent sugar crystal malformation.

Advantages for the cane sugar factory

  • Higher throughput
  • Better filtration and crystallisation
  • Better production results
  • Improved sugar quality

Advantages for the sugar refinery

  • Better clarification
  • Longer filter service life
  • Better production results
  • Improved sugar quality

Enzymes for the sugar beet industry

  • Sugazym Quickmove (enzyme mix)
  • Sugazym DX L (dextranase)
  • Sugazym HiTaA L (heat-stable α-amylase)
  • Sugazym MeTaA L (α-amylase)

Sugafloc for better clarification

Our solution for the sugar industry

The clarification of sugar juices and syrups is a key step in the production of high-quality sugar. Sugafloc AS (anionic polymers) improve flocking and sedimentation during purification. Sugafloc KS (cationic polyamines) further help achieve maximum colour removal during carbonatation and phosphatation.

Sugafoam for a foam-free process

Our solution for the sugar industry

During sugar production, the presence of certain non-sugar substances in beet and cane juices can lead to severe foaming. Sugafoam is an effective means of preventing foam formation and stabilisation during sugar manufacture from beet and cane, thus improving the overall throughput.
