What is Sugar Made of?
Do you know that white sugar is white because it was further purified or refine from brown sugar?
Sugar is a carbohydrate found in fruits and vegetables.
No wonder my grandmother stays away from brown sugar, she doesn't like the sound of 'refined' or 'purified.'
Sugar is made when sugar cane or beet plant is juiced and boiled, then squeezed. It is spun in a revolving drum to remove the water and crystals of brown sugar are left behind.
The brown sugar is further purified, dissolved and filtered, then it becomes white sugar.
