Sugar can also be made from cane or beet plants. Cane sugar is the most common type of sugar used in the United States.

Sugar is used to add sweetness to foods and beverages. It’s also used in baking and cooking to help improve texture and flavor.

Sugar can also help preserve food. In addition, sugar can be used as a decorative element, such as on top of a cake or in candied fruit.
