Abstract

Man has always included some form of sugar in his diet. Only in the past two centuries has sugar been developed as an individual food. During that time vast amounts of money and time have gone into the development and improvement of sugar. In 1747, a German chemist by the name of Andreas Marggraf proved that sugar beets contained sugar. One of his pupils, Franz Karl Achard, in 1799 gave further evidence of this fact by his experiments.
