Sugar, or to put it in scientific language – sucrose, which, when ingested, the human body is split into glucose and fructose, not such a simple product, as many think. Yes, yes. I’m sure you do not know the half of what I’m going to write.
For example, 90% of confectionery products (cakes, candies, marshmallows, candy, cream, ice cream, mousses, soufflés, chocolate, waffles and pastries) that we all just adore, it would be impossible to create without sugar. The fact that requires no proof. But this is just warming up. I wonder? I think – I wonder. In this case – read on.
Did you know that brown sugar is a much more healthy food than white? And this is not fiction. He quickly absorbed and is considered an elite variety in the U.S. and Japan. But we have not considered.
Interestingly, the sugar, in gratitude for his versatility and taste, was erected a few of these sites. For example, in the Czech Republic, where he first hit upon the idea to produce refined sugar, is a monument in the form of a huge, white cube, the imaging is just refined sugar. From the side looks very impressive.
But in the city of Sumy (Ukraine) went even further. The city authorities, at the urging of residents who have decided to keep up with the Czechs, have erected an entire sculptural composition, and also, on sugar – refined sugar.
Some say – sugar drug. Sugar is certainly not a drug, but the truth in this statement is still there. The scientists, who like to check everything in the world, conducted experiments with laboratory rats and mice. The essence of these experiments was as follows. The animals were accustomed to sugar, and after a while, most of them have started a real relationship from him. The study showed that the relationship can be justifiably compared to the drug. That’s the way. On the other hand, those same scientists have proven – the usual sugar, can be called a part of happiness. People who use it enough, often smiling, they have a smooth and good humor. But opponents of the sugar, are often angry and irritable. The truth is not known how quickly and strongly we can get used to it.
Sugar is not only solid but also liquid. For liquid forms include such varieties as invert sugar (use during the preparation of soda) and the amber liquid sucrose (brown sugar it replaces).
Some model aircraft, use of sugar in combination with other ingredients to create this fuel, which is charged with their models. And they fly!
But the fuel – this is nonsense, in one of the research centers that provide mobile phones that will not work on standard batteries and accumulators, and the sugar. Argued – the efficiency of the new product will exceed the standard, at least 8 times. Weird fact.
Another curious fact – in a standard jar of Coco-Cola (0.5 liter) contains exactly 16 cubes of sugar, or 7 teaspoons full. And Pepsi at all eight spoons. That’s a lot. A lot. So be careful with these drinks.
Such are the interesting, obscure and interesting facts about the sweet sugar.
