So, what is szacharóz?

Szacharóz, also known as sucrose, is a common disaccharide found in many plants, including sugar cane and sugar beet. It is a crystalline substance with a sweet taste and is commonly used as a sweetener in food and beverage products. Szacharóz is made up of one molecule of glucose and one molecule of fructose and is broken down in the body to provide energy. It is often added to processed foods, but excessive consumption can lead to negative health effects, including obesity, tooth decay, and increased risk of diabetes. Despite these concerns, szacharóz remains a popular ingredient in many foods and drinks.
