Hydrophilic
Sugar- water
Hydrophilic substances love water. These substances are attracted to and usually dissolve in water. A hydrophilic molecule reacts with water among other polar molecules. Sugar and salt are two examples of hydrophilic things. Salt in fact is usually used to attract the water out of foods. A hydrophilic molecule is usually polar and can form hydrogen bonds, which water molecules use to bond together making it soluble in water. Not all hydrophilic substances dissolve however. A mixture between a polar solvent and a hydrophilic solute that doesn’t dissolve is called a colloid.
