Expanded Definition of Sugar

Generally the term sugar refers to table sugar, scientifically known as sucrose.

On this web page I use the term sugar to include any kind of concentrated sweet such as:

  • Corn syrup
  • Fructose
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Dextrose
  • Maltose
  • Sorbitol
  • Honey
  • Fruit juice
  • Sucanat
  • Date sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • “Raw” or “natural” or “Turbinado” sugar, and Florida Crystals
  • Agave syrup
  • And any other calorie containing sweetener

Although each one may have slight variations on how they affect the body, they basically have very similar affects. So, don’t fool yourself in trying to search for sugar substitutes after you read the sugar (concentrated sweets) articles.
