Is there a difference between sugar produced from sugar beets and sugar produced from sugarcane?

There is no difference in the sugar produced from either cane or beet. Sugarcane, a giant grass, thrives in a warm, moist climate, storing sugar in its stalk. The sugar beet grows best in a temperate climate and stores its sugar in its white root. Sugar from both sources is produced by nature in the same fashion as all green plants produce sugar – as a means of storing the sun’s energy.
