Sucrose (also known as ordinary table sugar) is a colorless crystalline solid that is used as a fuel for some compositions. It's most commonly used in smoke mix and in Candy propellant.
It very cheaply available in large amounts in supermarkets. When you have a choice, it is best to use 'pure icing sugar'. This is finely powdered, and contains no contaminants or binders. Beware of buying 'icing mix' which contains around 20% binder
Sucrose is not particularly hazardous or dangerous.
