Structures of sugar
What are complex sugars or carbohydrates (polysaccharides)?
Complex sugars are produced when a very large number of single sugar molecules (e.g. glucose) are combined. The most important polysaccharide for nutritional purposes is starch.
What is natural sugar?
Natural sugar is not a precise term. It is often used to mean naturally occurring sugar (which includes our sugar) and/or sugar that is, as far as possible, left in its natural state (e.g. honey).
What is sugar-beet syrup?
It is produced by pressing or steaming and pressing fresh sugar beet. The resulting juice is evaporated to leave a dry substance and is purified using filtering agents, such as diatomite, cellulose, etc.
Does Südzucker also produce sugar-beet syrup (a kind of spread)?
