So, what is sacarose?

Sacarose, also known as table sugar or sucrose, is a common disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose. It is typically extracted from sugarcane or sugar beets and is widely used as a sweetener in various foods and beverages. Sacarose is a versatile ingredient that provides a sweet taste and texture to baked goods, desserts, and beverages. However, excessive consumption of sacarose can lead to health problems such as obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay. As a result, many people are opting for alternative sweeteners like stevia or erythritol. Despite this, sacarose remains a popular and widely used sweetener in the food industry.
