Sweeteners are used in savory dishes to bring balance to
the ingredients and flavors used. The interaction of brown sugar in
barbecue sauce with the acid of the vinegar and tomatoes is a great
example. In desert dishes sweeteners balance acidic fruits and
ingredients. Honey and maple syrup are used for glazes and sauces to
add, balance, enhance or bring out flavors in meats, fruits, and deserts.
