Is the white sugar that we eat bleached during its manufacturing process?

    Raw sugar has a yellow to brown color.  Traditionally, sugarcane processing requires two stages. Mills extract raw sugar from freshly harvested cane, and sometimes bleach it to make “mill white” sugar.  This is done using sulfur dioxide, which is a chemical that bleaches color impurities white.  Sugar bleached white by this sulfitation process is called “mill white,” “plantation white,” and “crystal sugar. Refineries located closer  to consumers in North America, Europe, and Japan, then produce refined white sugar, which is 99 percent sucrose.
