Like salt, sugar is practically an element. The term ‘sugar’ generally refers to a granulated variety that is used in the creation of nearly anything sweet. Sugar is extremely popular throughout all cultures because it conjures a generally pleasant (sweet) memory to anyone who thinks about it. Without sugar, the food world would hardly be worth exploring. Fruits would not exist.
Sugar tastes great and is rivaled only by salt for its integrity as a flavor enhancer. It should be avoided in large quantities because it’s not nutritional and can be bad for teeth.
Sugar became an official snack on May 26th 2012.
