Chinese Dessert in Food Culture

Around 3000 years ago, sugar appeared in the history of China; it's also the time when the first sweet dessert was documented.


The maltose and honey were firstly used, and later other sweet fruits were added. Gradually, flour, vegetable, meat, plant, flower, oil, and rice are all important ingredients in making dessert. 


Chinese desserts are less standardized, less milky, and less sugary, some of which can serve as a staple food.


The stuffing is important but also varies in different places in China. One type of dessert may have many different types of ingredients, cooking methods, or stuffings, according to geographical differences.
