This makes Brazil the number one producer of sugarcane in the world, followed by India, Thailand and Australia. Brazilian sugar comprises half of the world’s exports of sugar.
Brazilian sugar is grown in two major regions in Brazil. The main growing region is the Sao Paulo region. The other major growing region is in the northern states of Pernambuco and Alagoas. From the volume produced each year, about 73% is raw brown sugar; 24% is white unrefined sugar, and only 3% is white refined sugar, with color maximum Icumsa 45.
