>Can you please expand on this, Michael? What solids would be present that are not in regular sugar and that or bad for bees? I thought they were pretty much the same thing.
Refined sugar is just that, refined. It is almost pure sucrose. Dried cane juice has all the impurities that are in the sap of a sugar cane plant. It is not refined. Those solids are fine for humans, but bees are not equipped to deal with solids.
