It doesn't matter, they say, whether that calorie comes from table sugar (sucrose) or HFCS.
In refined form, sugar (also known as sucrose) has been linked to everything from heart disease to diabetes.
Every fructose molecule in sucrose, in contrast, is bound to a glucose.
It dissolves in its own weight of water, being three times less soluble than sucrose.
Ordinary molasses contains from 30 to 35 per cent of sucrose and almost as much glucose.
This is found to be true also of sucrose, reducing sugars, and many organic compounds.
The theoretical yield then of alcohol from sucrose would be 53 per cent and from invert sugar 51 per cent.
Cane sugar and beet sugar are when completely purified the same substance, that is, sucrose, C12H22O11.
The plane of rotation is rotated to the right by sucrose rather more powerfully than by dextrose.
That is, sucrose is converted into levulose and dextrose sugars.
sucrose su·crose (sōō'krōs')
A nonreducing crystalline disaccharide made up of glucose and fructose, found in many plants but extracted as ordinary sugar mainly from sugar cane and sugar beets, and widely used as a sweetener or preservative.
