Granulated White Sugar

Granulated white sugar is simply sucrose, a disaccharide of glucose and fructose. The sweet substance is the product of extraction from sugar cane (and occasionally sugar beets). For centuries, sugar was sold in loaves, but around the start of the 20th century, granular became the norm. White sugar gets its color because it has been refined, a process that involves the removal of molasses from the product.
