Marshmallows have been around for many years. Marshmallows date back to as early as 2000 BC, but in the 1800s was when marshmallows were actually just starting out. They were first invented by the Egyptians, who made individual marshmallows by hand by extracting sap from a mallow plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. Then in the 1800s, candy makers in France took the sap from marshmallow plants and combined it with egg whites and sugar. The marshmallow was first invented to be used as a medicine that came from the root of a marshmallow plant to help with sore throats.
Name Professor’s Name Course Name/Number Date Sugar is not bad for our health Today, I want to talk to you about sugar a food substance that has for a long time now been classified as a rogue product to our health. All this talk however has ignored the health benefits of sugar to our body which I am going to present to you today. It has been widely argued that sugar actually leads to an individual increasing weight/obesity and diabetes but at the same time, sugar is needed for crucial functions of the body for it to remain healthy in equal terms. Sugar is a disaccharide with two molecules namely glucose and fructose and thus the reason it is called sucrose. Glucose is the molecule that carries the health benefits of sugar as it produces energy facilitating the appropriate functioning of all our body processes.
So soon after the growing and farming of sugar became an easy task for humans, people like John Pemberton, the creator of the sugar filled drink Coca Cola™, discovered ways to make sugar into much more of a developed food such as candy, which can be traced back almost as far as 2,000 BC to the era of Ancient Egypt (Candy History). In addition to food, sugar was also used as an ingredient within drinks. Sugar was also used as an essential ingredient for much more filling foods than candy such as sugar cookies, which can be traced back to the 1700s in Pennsylvania. The candy and sugar cookies and the sucrose it contains, were eventually used for religious purposes such as egyptian candy being used to worship their gods and goddesses, and sugar cookies being left out for Santa Claus for the Christian holiday of Christmas (Candy History). Sugar not only revolutionized eating and drinking, but also helped start and spark inspiration towards religious services and traditions.
When your body digests too much sucrose sugar, it is very bad for your body because most of it does not contain any nutrients such as protein, vitamins or minerals (too much glucose and fructose is bad for your body too, they just contain healthy substances). This causes the food to be mostly converted into fat, which can cause obesity and heart disease. A good amount of fat is healthy because your body needs a certain amount of it to function correctly, but when too much sugar is consumed, then too much fat is gained, this causes serious health issues. I found this topic interesting because I like learning about the body and how to take care of it. What to eat and what not to eat, and how that affects us in the long run is also very fascinating.
In fact, in the West, sugar was used only as a medicine or preservative up to the middle of the 18th century when people "discovered" it made a sweet treat as well. The earliest known date that white sugar was refined was about 200 C.E. so it is probable that the further refining into what was later known as "Sugre Candie" was at about that time. Can't Warehouse today makes rock candy.” (Wilde, E. (1999). Rock Candy History
It 's a common fact that diets high in sugar are linked to weight gain and obesity. Research has now shown that chronic consumption of added sugar numbs the brain 's anorexigenic oxytocin system, which is the sensor that prevents overeating. When our brain doesn 't release certain hormones to signal to us that we are full, we will continue eating. This can result in a cycle of overeating or needing to constantly eat more to "feel" full.

The Danger Lurking in Your Kitchen Pantry In tenth grade, my biology teacher radically changed the way I ate with six simple words: high fructose corn syrup is bad. At first I brushed it off as one of the many stories that adults make up to scare children into eating their vegetables, but when my teacher went into the science behind his statement, I understood the powerful truth behind his words. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a liquid sweetener made from corn and composed of the simple sugars fructose and glucose (White 1716S; vol. 88). Today, sugar makes up much of the average American’s diet, especially that of teenagers. Of all the sweeteners consumed, HFCS stands as one of the most common ("Why You Should Never Eat”).
