Sugar cane is a tropical grass with thick fibrous stems that are rich in sugar. The stems are crushed to extract the juice, which is then evaporated to extract the sugar. Crystallised sugar has been produced in India for 2500 years. Engraving from "Grands Hommes et Grands Faits de l'Industrie" (1880).
