Sucrose

A natural, crystalline disaccharide found in grapes, most fruit and many plants. This is the type of refined sugar obtained from sugar cane, sugar beet and other sources which, when added to a must or juice to make up for deficiencies in natural sugar, must be hydrolyzed (inverted) into fructose and sucrose by acids and enzymes in the yeast before it can be used as fuel for fermentation.
