Sucrose is also used significantly in the food industry. Sugar has a key role in the production of thousands of food products ranging from cured meats and frozen fruits to bakery and confectionery. Sugars have crucial importance in defining the texture (mouthfeel) and bulk (volume) of foods. For instance, sugar provides volume to biscuits and cakes. The use of sugar with a gelling agent including pectin provides jelly texture in jams. In baked products, sugar delivers a light texture to cakes, trapping air bubbles, and enhances the starch gelatinization temperature.

Sugar also offers a base for fermentation of yeast in bakery products including bread. Sugar binds to water, which is essential for the preservation of food. Sugars also enhance the boiling point, which is essential in the production of sweets and decreases the freezing point, which is essential for the development of softer ice creams. Sucrose is also found in virtually all pre-made foods ranging from fruit juice to candy bars. This represents significant applications of sugar in pharmaceutical and food and beverage products, which, in turn, is contributing to the growth of the global industrial sugar market.
