Desserts are by definition a sweet course. This usually means high content of sugar or fats. Desserts have historically been known as a smaller course to end a meal but in modern times they have become a more major part of people’s diets.
Although desserts are sweet a small amount of sugar is recommended in a daily diet. My grand father was a great sweet maker in his time, so I had learned lots of sweets and deserts from him.
