Sugar is one of the most popular sweeteners used in Pakistan today. From baked goods to beverages, this all-purpose sweetener has been a favorite for centuries. White sugar is the crystallized sucrose extracted from either sugarcane or sugar beets. After harvesting the sugarcane or sugar beets, the juice is extracted and boiled down to remove moisture. As the moisture diminishes, the natural sucrose in the juice begins to crystallize. The crystallized sugar is removed, leaving other extracts behind in the form of molasses, using rapidly spinning centrifuges.
