  Sugars have a long history of safe use in foods. They are common food ingredients that add taste appeal and perform important functions in foods. Besides its pleasant sweetness, sugar performs a host of less obvious and important functions in cooking, baking, candy making and the like. As carbohydrates, sugars are a contributor of calories for the body. The ability to produce solutions of varying degrees of sweetness is important in many food applications, particularly in beverages and confectionery. Low-calorie sweeteners add a taste that is similar to that of sucrose. Intense sweeteners are generally several times sweeter than sucrose. On the other hand, sugar replacers are the bulk and volume providing sweeteners usually less sweet than and different tasting from sugar, commonly used on a one-for-one replacement basis for sugar in recipes. Sugars have been studied extensively for their impact on a variety of issues.

  In present world there is an increase in demand for organic waste disposal to minimize pollution and maximize resource recovery. Several workers from various parts of the world have reported successful conversion of waste materials to useful compost. Lignocellulose comprises three different polymer types: lignin, hemicellulose and cellulose. Bioconversion of lignocellulosic material through microbial enzyme to produce fermentable sugars has been given serious consideration and continuous research and development activities has been carried out in laboratories around the world. This article highlights the significant research findings and reviews the state of the art in this very important area of biotechnology.

  Hydrolysis of agricultural wastes of jute sticks and rice husks were studied to extract D-xylose. When jute sticks was used as substrate, 1N H2SO4 was found to be suitable for D-xylose extraction at boiling temperature after a period of 1h. 1N H2SO4 was also found best for D-xylose extraction from rice husks. No cellobiose was detected in hydrolysate

  In a study, dust of deltamethrin @ 2 ppm and 3 ppm (T8), neem oil (T3), pithraj oil (T7), soybean oil (T1), sesame oil (T4) and jute oil @ 15 m/kg grain (T5), applied to kenaf seeds were fully effective up to 3, 3, 3, 2, 2 and 2 months respectively against adults of Z. subfasciatus Boheman. While castor oil less effective. (T1), (T3), (T4), (T5), (T6) and (T7) caused effective reduction in oviposition up to 2 months and (T8) caused effective up to 3 months. The higher doses of plant oils caused more then 70% egg mortality and reduced adult emergence significantly to prevented further infestation but the efficacy of lower doses deteriorated at later stages of sampling. Finally in another trial, each 500 g kenaf seeds of which each 5 % contained separately each of the four stages of Z. subfasciatus and also containing 5 pairs of adults, was treated separately with each of the above 8 treatments (only highest doses of T1 to T8) and was stored in sealed polythene bags. T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6 and T7 offered 86.85 , 81.40, 91.36, 84.34, 86.77, 84.70 and 83.69% grain protection respectively as against 87.54% infestation in the control experiment during 4 months of storage. The germination ability of seeds was not affected by any treatment.

  Micropropagation consists of three types of vegetative propagation. It remains a popular research subject and thus continued research is definitely needed to increase the speed with which some plants can be produced giving a superior quality product.
