WHAT DOES CONFECTIONER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

confectioner

Confectionery

Confectionery, or the making of confections, are food items that are rich in sugar and carbohydrates. Confectionery is the art of creating sugar-based dessert forms, or subtleties. Confections include sweet foods, sweetmeats, digestive aids that are sweet, elaborate creations, and something amusing and frivolous. Confectionery is divided into two broad and somewhat overlapping categories, bakers' confections and sugar confections. Bakers' confectionery, also called flour confections, includes principally sweet pastries, cakes, and similar baked goods. Sugar confectionery includes sweets, candied nuts, chocolates, chewing gum, sweetmeats, pastillage, and other confections that are made primarily of sugar. In some cases, chocolate confections are treated as a separate category, as are sugar-free versions of sugar confections. The confectionery industry also includes specialized training schools and extensive historical records. Traditional confectionery goes back to ancient times, and continued to be eaten through the Middle Ages into the modern era. Modern usage may include substances rich in artificial sweeteners as well.
