Being an important source of food energy, sugar today represents one of the top ten most traded commodities around the world. Known for its sweetening properties, sugar is proficient in lowering the freezing point of foods. Moreover, sugar is considered an indispensable product for the food industry as it provides an even texture to food items, enhances flavours, adds warm colour and extends the shelf life of the bakery products.
