LimeX is a co-product of sugar beet manufacturing derived from high-purity limestone that is used to clarify and filter ‘raw juice’ – the liquid sugar that is produced when sliced sugar beet are diffused with hot water.

Once the precipitated lime has purified the juice, it is pressed, dried and stored at the factories as LimeX.
