Sugar is the name of a group of organic compounds such as glucose, fructose and sucrose. Each of these compounds can be expressed by its own unique chemical formula, almost always as CnHnOn, where "n" is often a number b... More »

Vinegar consists of acetic acid, or CH3COOH, and water, H2O. Small amounts of sugar and fruit juices may be added to vinegar as flavoring agents, and infusions of herbs are also common. More »

Chemical compounds with the molecular formula C6H12O6 are known as hexoses. Common examples of hexoses include glucose, fructose and galactose. Compounds with the same molecular formula but vary in structural formulas ar... More »

The monosaccharides glucose and fructose join together to make up sucrose, which is a disaccharide. Sucrose's chemical structure contains a glucose ring and a fructose ring, which are connected by an acetal oxygen bridge... More »

During the hydrolysis of sucrose, sucrose forms a 1:1 mixture of glucose and fructose. In honey, this mixture of glucose and fructose is the primary ingredient. More »

The Calvin cycle uses carbon dioxide, water and adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, to produce high-energy sugars such as glucose, fructose and sucrose. It is one of the core processes of photosynthesis in plants, and the AT... More »

When fructose and glucose are bonded together, they form sucrose, or table sugar. This carbohydrate is naturally present in all fruits and vegetables. Sugar cane and sugar beets are the main sources of sucrose processed ... More »
