Sugar and Sweeteners

Sugar is composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. It is used as a natural food stuff to sweeten the majority of other food stuffs that we wish to taste sweet. Monosaccharides is the simplest form of sugar. Sugar can be found in the tissues of plants before sugar use, honey was used to add sweetness to our foods. Sweeteners, rather than being a food stuff is a food additive. High intensity sweeteners, are a lot sweeter than sugar that we use everyday that does not contain the same level of food energy. Sweeteners can be natural or synthetic the majority are artificial. Sorbitol is a natural sweetener whereas saccharin, created by accident in 1879 is an artificial sweetener. Sweeteners can take the place of natural sugar, where the consumption of natural sugar may be detrimental to our health, such as diabetes sufferers. Canada banned the use of saccharin in 1977 as tests in relation to bladder cancer from the 1960's showed that their may be a link to bladder cancer of users of high dies of saccharin, also these tests involved the use of animals.

Does sugar really make kids hyperactive?

Not for most children. Contrary to popular belief, many studies have proven there's no link between most kids' sugar consumption and their level of activity.

Some kids can be affected more than most, like those with ADHD or those who are more sensitive to blood sugar spikes—but these cases are the exception to the rule.

Some researchers suggest the perceived link between sugar and hyperactivity comes from the conditions surrounding sugar intake. High-energy events, like birthday parties, often have sugar-rich treats as a centerpiece of the festivities—it’s not the sugar that’s hyping them up, pediatric dietitian Kristi L. King suggests, but the adrenaline. Further, one study illustrated that parents who think their children have consumed sugar rate their kids’ activity levels higher, even if they never actually had any sugar.

So, although there are some notable exceptions, the link between sugar and hyper kids seems to be mostly imagined.

How do you make glucose syrup?

Simple. Take a cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water and heat till just thickened. Not too long or it will become a solid.

Actually, the above method will not result in glucose. Table sugar is "sucrose" (a mixture of fructose and glucose) and heating it with water does not change this; it remains a mixture of fructose and glucose. (It is not very practical to attempt making pure glucose in a home environment, however many supermarkets sell it in hydrated and powdered form for use in cooking).

Why is my sugar damp?

Sugar is what scientists call 'hygroscopic', meaning it attracts water from the air.

If your sugar is prone to getting damp, it is best to keep it in an air-tight container. Some glass jars have an air-seal. These are ideal for storing sugar.

Small quantities of sugar can be put into a suitable bowl (stainless steel, glass etc) for easy access, which can be stored in warm dry conditions when not needed for immediate use.

Food Additives

Why is lactose added to food?

In contrast with sucrose, lactose is less sweet and has the appearance of crystallised sugar. If used in any food as a sweetening agent, it does not hinder the sweetness of food products. Therefore the demand for lactose includes a variety of low-volume and special applications in the food industry.

Lactose is used to improve the functionality of shortenings or to improve the taste of food products as an agglomerating or free-flowing agent. It is also used for flavours, enzymes, or pigments as a thinner. Lactose is also one of the main ingredients used to manufacture caramel flavours in confectioneries.

Lactose has significant applications in pharmaceuticals, apart from the food industry, and is used as a carrier for drugs because it is safe, is available in a highly processed form, and helps to manufacture tablets of good quality.
