What sugar do we use?

Occasionally one of our customers will ask us about our sugar – what kind of sugar do we use?  – cane or beet?   in a tone of genuine concern.  Other customers standing by will look bewildered, or treat the customer like some unusual fuss-pot – and then be surprised when we go on to have a serious conversation.  Why does it matter?  What’s the big deal?   We all know – or should know, by now! – that sugar should be used sparingly – that we should avoid processed foods with intense sugar levels- but why should we differentiate between beet and cane sugars?

Beets have a very high sugar content, are a crop that can be grown in the colder northern climates, and are processed into granulated sugar.  Beet sugar is usually a little less expensive because it’s widely grown and readily available – not just grown in the tropics. It comes in the same packages as cane sugar, and looks identical to granulated sugar made from sugar cane. Currently, there is no law that requires labeling of whether the manufacturer used beet sugar or cane sugar – so it is very rarely that you will find any clue on the packaging.  Labels such as ‘pure sugar’, ‘organic sugar’, or ’100% sugar’ are meaningless, if you want to differentiate between cane and beet sugar – making it very difficult for consumers to make an educated choice.

Why does it matter?  One word – Monsanto.  Commercial planting of a genetically modified, herbicide-tolerant sugar beet began in the USA in 2008, and in Canada in 2009.  Now all North American granulated sugar, except granulated CANE sugar, is polluted with GMOs, since 2008.   That is too short a time for us to completely understand the effects of Genetically Modified Beet Sugar, and – given Monsanto’s horrific track record – it is obvious they should not be trusted with our health.    After a long, long court debate, in July 2012 the FDA finally threw up their hands and allowed GMO sugar beets to be planted without regulation.  NO REGULATION = CROSS POLLINATION.  It won’t be too long before GMO sugar beets cross pollinate with ORGANIC sugar beets.  Pretty soon GMO sugar beets will be the only ones that exist.

Cane sugar, on the other hand,  has not been genetically modified.  Not that they haven’t tried!  Scientists have tried to GMO cane sugar for years, but have been frustrated by it’s complex and difficult genetic structure.

So – summary -   Cane Sugar is non-GMO.    Beet Sugar is GMO.

So – back to the question – what sugar do we use?

Cane sugar.

How do we know?

Lantic Canada is the owner of Rogers Sugar Refinery.
In response to requests on this topic, they issued the following statement:

In Alberta all white sugar products sold is made from sugar beets but all brown sugar products are made from cane sugar which is all non-GMO.    All sugar sold in BC is made from cane sugar refined at the Vancouver refinery.”

“Products with the ink-jet code on the package starting with the number “22” are from Taber, Alberta, while products with the code starting with the number “10” are from Vancouver”.

(emphasis mine)

So – all our fellow bakers, all our happy eaters – if you are going to eat sugar, use moderation – and check the package when you buy your sugar.   Here is a photo of the ink-jet code from a bag of the sugar we use in our bakery – note it begins with the ’10′ as detailed above:

IMG_1868

Without legislated mandatory labelling of GMO products, we cannot for certainty say that all of our products are 100% GMO-free.   Because we do source many of ingredients locally, and because Thea is constantly concerned about maintaining high standards, you can be sure that we are bringing the best possible quality to our markets, and will always be vigilant about our ingredients and our process.

Transparency is important.  There are many great people pushing for proper labelling -  such as the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network – and  we applaud the Royal City Farmers Market in New Westminster for taking the lead and declaring the market a GMO-free zone.  While the long-term effects of GMO manipulation are both unclear and debateable, the right of consumers to clearly understand what they are buying is a right, not a privilege.

That’s our position.   See you at the markets!!!
