Dendritic sugar

Extra sweet sugar due to surface area
  [vote for,

Nestle recently patented a method of reducing sugar content by 40% without reducing sweetness by making the grains hollow. They could've gone further than this by making sugar crystals of the same volume but repeatedly branched in order that they dissolve in saliva of another liquid such as coffee more thoroughly and rapidly. Hence my suggestion. Even so, I'm not aware whether sucrose, or any other sugar for that matter, can be induced to crystallise dendritically.

       It can't be both dissolved and dendritic at the same time.

       First they are dendritic. Then they dissolve. More thoroughly. And rapidly. \   

       It seems like the easiest yet would be to make the grains extremely small. You can make things extremely small by grinding them.

       //make things extremely small by grinding them.   

       ^ except grinding machines, it would be too recursive.

       Some things can be made smaller by grinding them but please don't deprive me of my sweet little trees, until I decide to destroy them with coffee.

       "Nestle recently patented " I am so relieved, this was almost an idea that I put up on the .5b, which was hollow salt. I think I skipped posting about hollow sugar, not sure though.   

       do you think they have thought of sucralose core hollow sugar yet? that way when the sprinkles dissolve they are sweeter than sugar.   

       Also, [nineteenthly] I think you once wrote about contraceptive plants, noting laser. Apparently there are a bunch of these. the nontopical [link] is to a quora discussion on that

       This won't help you if take 2 teaspoonfuls. A 1/2 a teaspoon dissolved quicker won't take the same edge off. So not extra sweet but rather a clever disintegration.
