Sugar has been much maligned as being the culprit for obesity, diabetes and other ailments. Sugar is a carbohydrate made of two simple sugars fructose and glucose. It provides our body with energy but since it has no nutritional value we must keep track of how much we are consuming. Whatever research says, we still have it at home and use it for cakes and pastries.
