Sugar is the popular name by which sucrose is known, also called common sugar, which is the most widely used in the world. Sucrose is a disaccharide formed by a molecule of glucose and one of fructose, which is obtained mainly from sugar cane or sugar beet. Currently, it is one of the most used products worldwide in the kitchen, especially in pastries or to make smoothies, as it is a type of simple carbohydrate that the body needs for energy. It is also very common in coffee or soft drinks due to its sweetening power.
The total annual consumption of sugar worldwide is around 24 kilograms per person, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The most consumed type of sugar is white sugar, which is subjected to a 100% chemical refining process where it loses all its properties. However, as long as it is consumed moderately in daily life, sugar can have different benefits, especially energy benefits, for humans. It helps fight depression or anxiety, reduces the feeling of tiredness and reduces bodily discomfort caused by hypoglycemia.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends consuming only about 25 grams per day per person. Be that as it may, its use as a universal sweetener is unquestionable.
