A Bit of History

The earliest sugars in North America came from fruit, as well as corn and bark. Native Americans used fruit as a food and medicine and, given its natural sugar, a preservative. The dried fruit provided sustenance in the cold winter months. Later, it was significant to the enslaved people and Civil War soldiers.
