What Is Sugar And Its Uses?

How to make powdered sugar? Sugar is carbohydrates that our body converts into starch and glucose and uses to get energy. The amount of sugar depends on our health. More sugar is unhealthy for us.  There are different types of sugar like brown sugar, cane sugar, coconut sugar etc.
