Can Bagasse Be Eaten?

Mar. 04, 2020

Sugarcane is relatively resistant, so it grows tall and straight, and has a lot of water. So can bagasse be eaten? What are the uses of bagasse? Let's take a look with the Biodegradable Paper Cup Supplier!

Uses of bagasse

1. Production of fuel alcohol

In the 1970s, the sugarcane bagasse of sugar factories in China was mainly burned or discarded by the sugar factories themselves. The economic value of this utilization method was very low. Cellulose in bagasse can be converted into sugar and made into alcohol or feed yeast.

2. Bagasse as feed

Over the years, many scholars at home and abroad have devoted themselves to the research and development of byproducts of sugar mills as feed, and have achieved certain results. Mix bagasse with urea or amine compound (100: 2 aqueous solution), soak the bagasse completely, cook in a heating pot at a pressure of 14kg for 2 hours, and mix it with yeast when the temperature drops to about 25°C after leaving the pot After fermentation, the gas produced by it is exhausted, and bagasse is dried and ground to a fine powder, which can then be used as feed.

3.Bagasse is used as environmental protection material:

(1)Papermaking: At present, there are mature technologies that use bagasse as a substitute for wood to produce paper cup base paper, fully degradable paper agricultural mulch film, and paper dining utensils such as Ecofriendly Bagasse Pulp Tray. Among them, the fully degradable paper agricultural mulch uses 100% bagasse pulp, which can be recycled for papermaking and can be naturally degraded. It can solve the white pollution problem caused by the use of polystyrene tableware for many years. It is considered to be the most promising. New achievements; catering made from bagasse has high whiteness and compactness, good temperature and oil resistance, non-toxic and tasteless, can be completely degraded within three months, no waste pollution during production, and the production cost is greatly lower Fast food box for pulp molding.

(2)The chemical composition of bagasse for producing high-density composite materials is similar to that of wood and is a good raw material for board making. Use bagasse resources to produce high-density composite materials. Because bagasse has a small specific gravity, good fiber quality, and the resulting board has high strength and light weight, the produced boards and profiles are free from biological damage, low water absorption, and not corroded by seawater; good fire resistance and good resistance flammability, good mechanical processing performance and decorative performance, suitable for furniture, construction, carriages, ships, packaging boxes and other manufacturing industries. The product has strong plasticity. It can replace different molds or templates to directly produce a variety of plates and profiles, which has great market value. The realization of high-density composite material technology not only solves the problem of pollution discharge of agricultural waste and urban waste, but also saves limited forestry resources, which will definitely have a huge impact on China's 21st century environmental protection industry.

In fact, bagasse is generally not harmful to the human body, but if you are too lean and have less abdominal fat, it can cause sudden illness such as constipation, intestinal obstruction, or appendicitis, and bagasse has no nutrition, just some crude fiber If you eat less, you will have laxative effects. Therefore, do not swallow bagasse easily, especially children. Be sure to prevent them from swallowing sugar cane, which is very harmful to the body. When children eat sugarcane, it is best to have a parent to accompany them.

In fact, bagasse is the residue after crushing sugar from sugarcane. It has a rough texture and accounts for about 24% to 27% of sugarcane (including about 50% of water content). For every ton of sucrose produced, 2 ~ 3 Tons of bagasse. An approximate analysis of wet bagasse shows that bagasse is rich in cellulose and contains less lignin, so bagasse has great advantages as a fiber raw material.

The above is the use of bagasse introduced by Biodegradable Bowl 40 Oz Supplier.
