Are All Sugars the Same?

Carbohydrates are organic compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. These compounds are used to produce energy by living things. Sugars, starches, glycogen and cellulose are all carbohydrates.Sucrose, or table sugar, is obtained from sugar cane or sugar beets. Fructose is the sugar found naturally in fruits and widely used in the form of high-fructose corn syrup. Sucrose is composed of two simple (monosaccharides) sugars, glucose and fructose bonded together.This project focuses on two classes of sugars: monosaccharides (fructose) and disaccharides (sucrose or table sugar). It will focus on the use of reagent tablets that will enable the investigator to determine if table sugar is the same as the sugar found in honey and/or fruit juice. The investigator will add the tablets to a series of test sugar solutions, observe the reactions, record the data, and draw a conclusion based on the results.
