Sugar

Sugar

Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food.

A great expansion in its production took place in the 18th century with the establishment of sugar plantations in the West Indies and Americas. This was the first time that sugar became available to the common people, who had previously had to rely on honey to sweeten foods.
