SWEETENERS & SUGARS
We've been sweet-talking the industry for years.
HOW SWEET IT IS
Sweeteners are an important part of the global food and beverage industry. With diverse sources and uses, sweeteners require a wide range of process technologies to manufacture. And the higher the quality and consistency of your sweetener, the greater its value.
Dow Water & Process Solutions is the leading supplier of products and technologies to produce sweeteners of the highest purity and enable the most cost-effective manufacturing processes.
SWEETENERS & SUGARS SPECIALTY MARKETSWhether we’re raising cane extraction to new levels or sweetening the science of polyol production, you can count on Dow Water & Process Solutions to help you deliver consistent, high-quality sweeteners time and time again.
Sugar beets contain up to 12% sucrose by weight and have become a significant source of sucrose in North America and Europe.
At Dow Water & Process Solutions, we won't let you miss a beet. Our ion exchange (IX) technology enables decalcification and chromatographic recovery of sugar and betaine from beet molasses.
Sugar cane is the major global source of sucrose and contains approximately 10% sucrose by weight. Because the sugar content of cane rapidly decreases upon harvesting, it's typically processed within 24 hours after cutting and the cell walls are broken by crushing them in large mechanical rollers.
This crushing process introduces impurities into the raw sugar and requires refining. Our ion exchange (IX) products help you decolorize and polish your raw sugar into high-quality sugar and syrups.Learn about decolorization, a key step in the production of white sugar from sugarcane
High Fructose Starch Sweetener
Starch-based sweeteners (particularly from corn), are the primary food and beverage sweeteners of our time. But before they can be sold as food ingredients, starches must be converted to glucose, isomerized into fructose, fractionated, blended into high fructose corn syrup and purified.
We are the sweetener industry's leading provider of deashing, chromatographic enrichment and color removal technologies, helping you produce the highest quality sweetener at the lowest cost.

Super sweet and low in calories, polyols are sugar alcohols that are found in a wide range of products, including chewing gum and toothpaste.
Polyols are produced from nickel-catalyzed hydrogenation of monosaccharides and disaccharides. After hydrogenation, our ion exchange (IX) technology enables you to effectively decolorize and demineralize the raw polyol solutions.
