The production of sugar has changed in the twenty-first century from natural cane sugar to high fructose corn syrup. In light of climate change, and creating a sustainable environment, which sweet substance is more sustainable while still being able to keep up with global sugar demand? Through the analysis of scholarly articles and books, the impacts these sweeteners have on the environment can be studied to generate a conclusion. Cane sugar and high-fructose corn syrup both produce large amount carbon emissions and degrade the environment, so the answer may be to produce and consume less sugar as a whole.
