Concentrated sugars provide us with easy instant energy
and are also very useful in preserving food. Honey was used to make sweets with fruits, nuts and flowers to make tasty treats that could last for quite a long time without perishing. But what is sweet now, turns so sour when sugar also makes our teeth rot sooner and is one of the greatest causes of the rise in obesity. With great sweetness comes great responsibility!
The english word “candy” was borrowed from the French “sucre candi” which in turn was borrowed from the Arabic “qandī” which revered specifically to sweets made with crystallized sugar.
