What is white sugar?

White sugar which we buy in stores is a refined sugar. This means that it has been extracted from sugar cane plants or sugar beets and processed into crystals, whilst natural sugars are those found in food such as fruit and some dairy products. Also known as granulated sugar, white sugar is generally used to sweeten hot beverages or in baking.
