The ASSCT is comprised of two major branches, the Florida Division and the Louisiana Division Members of the ASSCT generally associate themselves with one of two membership groups.
To lead basic research in chemistry and physical chemistry of sugars in aqueous medium an cover such areas as structure- activity relations, solute-solvent interactions and the problems posed by crystallisation. To apply the informations derived from the physical and chemical studies to the understanding of practical problems such as : water activity depression and formulation of baked goods, enhancement of viscosity of technical sugar solutions. To develop modern analytical techniques for sugar users in function of their needs. To provide an up-to-date documentation and serve as a data-base on subjects like sweeteners, water activity, viscosity, sensory analysis or sugar crystallization for the professionals sponsoring the association. To help in finding solutions in our fields of competence for the problems posed by adherents of the association.
The Society is committed to the economic and sustainable advancement of the sugar cane industries of the world and associated communities, through promoting innovative research, development and the adoption of technology, and by sharing the knowledge among its members for their professional development.
