Glucose, fructose, and sucrose are made naturally in all green plants through photosynthesis, a process that converts energy from sunlight into food energy in the form of sugars and starches.
Sucrose is found in your home's table sugar and can be added to foods. This is the same sucrose that is found naturally in fruits and vegetables, along with the other simple sugars, glucose and fructose.
Fruits and vegetables also come packed with many important nutrients (e.g. vitamins, minerals, fibre) that our bodies need and benefit from.
A small amount of sugar can improve the flavour of many nutritious foods like whole grains, breakfast cereals, and flavoured yogurts.
Whether it is naturally occurring (from fruits or vegetables) or added to foods, our bodies use sucrose as a carbohydrate energy source for the body. Any excess carbohydrate or sugars consumed is stored for future use as glycogen or fat.
