Did you know in middle ages, when sugar and other sweeteners were too expansive, carrot were used to make desserts. That's why we have so many English desserts using carrots. While sugar cane is the source of 80% sugar of the world, 20% sugar comes from Beet roots. Other natural sweeteners are dates honey, jaggery and maple syrup.
