Food and Drink » Sugar & Sweeteners
Sugar contains mainly sucrose, lactose and fructose .. and it is known for its sweet flavour. In food, sugar almost exclusively refers to sucrose, which normally comes from either sugar cane and sugar beet. We stock only the best grades of sugar, such as Billingtons unrefined cane sugars. Alternatives to sugar can use fruit juice substitutes instead, such as apple or grapes. This can help with weight management and also be acceptable for diabetics. We also stock Stevia, a direct sugar replacement, ideal for diabetics and weight watchers.
