is an interesting hobby. The
thought of collecting sugar packets sparked my curiousity at first and now I enjoy all types of sugar information. Sugar really has been important through the ages, as a commodity, a sign of wealth, a metaphor for happiness. On my
site, you will find historical information, facts and
pictures, etc. To me, I see sugar more as a decoration [also, previously] instead of
a food. The concept of sugar can be so universal.
Embark upon an adventure through this website and take a look at sugar through my eyes.

Aside from white granulated sugar, sugar comes in many forms: "brown sugar" is usually white sugar with molasses
added for color and moisture (and how do you keep brown sugar from turning hard?)
is an unrefined brown sugar; turbinado
is a partially refined brown sugar available in the U.S.; demerara is a slightly different
unrefined brown sugar found in the U.K.
When talking about where sugar comes from, most people think of sugar cane
but your table sugar may be made
out of beets
. Palm sugar
across Southeast Asia and India
; date palms are also used to produce the popular sweetener jaggery (and a form of booze known as toddy)
How sweet it is.
