In this episode of Eat My Globe, our host, Simon Majumdar delves back into the often dark history of sugar, from the first cultivation of sugar canes to the current development of natural sugar alternatives. It is an history that is in great part responsible for the rapid development of the international slave trade, and one that takes in Indian Kings, Crusaders, a Pope, and a Moravian housewife who cut her finger while chopping sugar.
