sugar doctor To prevent the crystallization or ‘graining’ of sugar in sugar confectionery, a substance called the sugar doctor or candy doctor is added. This may be a weak acid, such as cream of tartar, which ‘inverts’ (hydrolyses) part of the cane sugar during the boiling, or invert sugar or starch syrup.
