Measurement and analysis of the mannitol partition coefficient in sucrose crystallization under simulated industrial conditions.


Mannitol is a major deterioration product of Leuconstoc mesenteroides bacterial metabolism of sucrose and fructose from both sugarcane and sugar beet. The effect of crystallization conditions on the mannitol partition coefficient (K(eff)) between impure sucrose syrup and crystal has been investigated in a batch laboratory crystallizer and a batch pilot… (More)
