Sugar exports - additional information

Sugar is a sweet, crystal-like substance normally used as a sweetener for beverages and food products. Sugars are classified into monosaccharides and disaccharides. Fructose, galactose and glucose are examples of simple sugars. Compound sugars include lactose, maltose and sucrose. There are many types of sugars such as agave nectar, coconut sugar, maple sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. However, sucrose, which is found in the stems of sugarcane and in the roots of sugar beets, is the most common variety.
