Sugar is a sweet crystalline substance derived from plants such as sugar cane and sugar beet, consisting essentially of sucrose. Sugar is colorless or white when in its pure state and can be tan or brown when less refined. Sugar is a form of a carbohydrate that the body converts to glucose. After your body breaks down carbohydrates and converts them into the simple sugar (glucose), it is then carried through the blood stream and delivered to awaiting cells. Your body depends on glucose and has developed procedures to maintain a constant supply.
