Origin of sugar

  • Middle English sugre from Old French sukere from Medieval Latin succārum from Old Italian zucchero from Arabic sukkar from Persian shakar from Sanskrit śarkarā grit, ground sugar

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From later Old French çucre (circa 13th cent), from Medieval Latin zuccarum, from Old Italian zucchero, from Arabic سُكّر (súkkar), from Persian شکر (Å¡akar), from Sanskrit शर्करा (śárkarā, “ground or candied sugar", originally "grit, gravel"), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱorkeh- (“gravel, boulder"), akin to Ancient Greek κρόκη (krókÄ“, “pebble").
