I wouldn't personally use any with beet sugar.  I had purchased 5 pounds of
sugar which, I believe, was mixed cane and beet.  It didn't perform the way
the pure cane sugar did.  Perhaps someone else might have had different
results and this _was_ quite a while ago when I was still working with
fruit pastes.  Didn't like the results _at all_!
