I use unrefined sugars. I am wondering if I should worry about msg in milled sugar and turbinado sugar?

Also I read about ice cream and no one was concern about the refined sugar in ice cream, only avoiding fillers. Isnt it a concern?

Shirley--I think the answer depends on how severe your reactions are. Some people tolerate certain foods well and the same foods cause awful reactions for others. We use C&H Pure Cane Sugar. I've never bought raw sugar or organic sugar as C&H works for us. Others on the list may have different experiences. Some use honey almost exclusively.

Shirley, fat in ice cream slows down the emptying of the stomach, and so the sugar that does get through is digested at a slower rate. People who are hypoglycemic are allowed some ice cream on diets that otherwise restrict simple sugars like sucrose. Hypoglycemics are often encouraged to make sure they eat some fat with a meal, to keep them feeling full longer.
