Calcium is used to remove various organic non-sugars from the raw juice when sugar is produced from sugar beet. The residual matter, a mix of carbonate of lime and organic residuals from the sugar beet, is returned to the beet growers under the name Betacal. The growers spread Betacal on their fields to maintain the pH balance and improve the soil structure.
