Sucrose is used in medications to impart a more pleasant taste to often unpalatable chemicals and can be found in many medical dosage forms including chewable tablets, syrups, lozenges, or gums. It is a white odourless crystalline solid, a non-reducing disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose. It is obtained commercially from sugar cane, sugar beet and used extensively as a food and a sweetener
