Is there any relation between sugar you take and body odor?

    Sugar cause body odor, but it does so indirectly and rarely. Sugar is directly not involved in this, lactose as a constituent of sugar causes body odor. This happens when our body is unable to digest food/sugar in a proper manner and can't break down the amino acids leucine, Isoleucine and Valine (all found in dairy products, just like lactose), urine and other body fluids may smell like maple syrup.

    Yes, if our food doesn't get properly digested then they become body odor.
