I grew up in Boise, Idaho, and any time we headed out of town on a road trip you always knew when you were passing by the sugar beet factory—it had a very distinct, unpleasant smell.

Sugar beets are harvested in the autumn and must be thoroughly washed after coming out of the ground before being processed. The beets are sliced very thinly and then placed in very hot water for an hour to diffuse the sugar. Then, the sliced are removed and pressed to extract as much remaining sugar as possible. The remaining beet pulp is processed into animal feeds, while the juice is sent to the carbonation process in which chunk of chalk growing in the liquid collects unwanted materials. Finally, the syrup is boiled down until sugar crystals start to form, are dried, and packed for use.
