Have you ever had a bag of sugar spoil? Has a bag of sugar in your pantry ever gotten moldy? I have seen lumpy sugar but never spoiled sugar. I don't even know what spoiled sugar would look like or taste like. Now, I realize that sugar is not good for you. It feeds fungus growth in and on your body along with other ailments. I really love sugar, but try to limit my intake of it. But it got me to wondering why it doesn't spoil.
I like sugar, I bet you like sugar, and virtually all living creatures like sugar. So, why doesn't sugar spoil, or get moldy, or get infested with small bugs like flower sometimes does? The reason is that it is extremely dry. It has a very, very low moisture content of about 0.02 percent. Any invading organism would have its moisture sucked right out of them. Sugar's extremely low water content also impedes chemical changes that could cause it to spoil. Of course, if sugar is dissolved in water, it is a completely different story. So, I guess it is best to keep both our sugar and our gun powder dry. Now you all have yourself a very sweet day to day, you hear?
