Although refined white sugar is made from natural sugar cane, the natural juices are processed several times before becoming the final crystallized, granulated product. Refined white sugar is pure sucrose, the final filtered state of the processed juice. The white sugar that remains after the multi-step processing is a pure carbohydrate, with all the natural vitamins and minerals removed. Organic natural milled sugar is a product of the sugar mill and is never sent to a refinery.
Organic sugar products are made from certified organic sugar cane. Organic sugar cane is grown without the use of synthetic herbicides or insecticides, using sustainable farming practices that conserve soil and resources. The organic plants are not altered through bioengineering, and the products are not exposed to ionizing radiation.
The sugar industry touts refined white sugar as being "pure," which only refers to the purification and filtering processes used to turn raw sugar into refined, pure sucrose. Organic natural milled sugar does not contain additives such as anti-caking agents. It does retain the natural vitamins and minerals from the sugar cane juice: iron, calcium, vitamin B6, potassium and chromium. Sugar is not deemed a good source of nutrients, however, since they are found only in trace amounts.
