Hydrolysed sucrose is called invert sugar since its rotation is inverted. Sucrose is made of D-glucose and D-fructose making sucrose dextrorotatory. But after hydrolysis sucrose gives D-glucose and L-fructose such that the laevorotation is more thereby bringing about an inversion in rotation hence called invert sugar.
