  16. 16. Summary  Sugars are naturally occurring sweeteners in all fruits and vegetables  Sugars not only add taste, but help to retain moisture in baked goods (increasing shelf life)  Other sweeteners include molasses, maple sugar, honey, lactose (milk sugar), maltose, and corn syrup  Fats and oils are essential nutrients in our diets, providing a significant energy source  Fats and oils can emulsify and provide shortening of baked goods  Eggs contain both protein and fats, which can be used to leaven, emulsify, build structure, tenderize, add moisture, and impart flavor/colorAmerican Culinary Federation: Baking Fundamentals © 2007 Pearson Education.
