(d) Sucrose (cane sugar, beet sugar, saccharose) is a sugar comprising one molecule of glucose linked to a fructose molecule. It occurs widely in plants and is particularly abundant in sugar cane and sugar beet (15 - 20%), from which it is extracted and refined for table sugar. If heated to 200°C, sucrose becomes caramel. Sucrose is broken down into the monosaccharides glucose and fructose with the help of carbohydrate digesting enzyme, invertase, produced in the small intestine (duodenum).
