yep i buy my sugar from a local wholesaler, not a big firm just a one man band he does not need credit accounts etc and he sells it at 65pence a 1kg bag, do what i did and try a couple of the smaller adverts in the yellow pages
the guy i get it from when i phoned him up had not got a clue why i wanted it , to him honey comes in jars not bee's , but he does bags of ten bags of sugar.for £6.50 , for cash only point is he needs three days notice if you want more than three sets of ten bags because he does not carry it as stock if you know what i mean
how do we know this dave?
if the shortage is coming next time i see my grandson in cambridge i will bring more sugar beets home. i use them only at the moment for wine making but i looks as isf i will start sugar extraction aswell
A couple of questions spring to mind:
1. What is the purpose of sulphite as an 'additive' in sugar, is is an anti caking agent or preservative?
2. What are the effects of sulphite on the bees?
The question of course is open to anyone with the specific working knowledge.
