This volume presents an objective state-of-the-art synopsis of the sucrose literature. Of its two main sections one is monographic and covers topics such as chemical and physical data on sucrose and its two major components (glucose and fructose), production, use, occurrence, metabolism and kinetics in animals and man, biochemical, health and safety aspects. The second section contains a bibliography of virtually all the significant works relating to the nutritional and safety aspects of sucrose.
