    Is raw sugar and "organic" sugar the same thing? I saw organic sugar in the grocery store the other day. I also saw "sugar in the raw". Are either of these what you are talking about?

    Do you know anything about organic sugar?

    I think I'm referring to the sugar that is organica, I have only found in a either natural food stores or restaurants.

    It is not processed or cookied down in the same manner, has had nothing added to it during the cooking process, yet it is not Brown sugar either.

    I like it more, use less and less is better,

    Did you find it in the same section as the other sugar products at WalMart? I noticed last week that WalMart is carrying more and more organic foods. I bought their "Great Value" organic milk...ends up being like $5/gallon but at least we're not getting the hormones and antibiotics!

    Im not sure if I remember this correctly but as I believe was stated to me. Raw sugar is not processed, organic sugar is process sugar just organicly grown.
    organic raw sugar would be sugar that was organiclly grown and not processed.
    I may have missed some of this conversation from lack of memory but it went somethign like the above.

    I found "organic" sugar, and I found "raw" sugar, but I couldn't find one that was both organic and raw.

    I bought the organic sugar. I did notice that it is not white, rather off-white in appearance.

    Boy oh boy, I thought I was in trouble when I saw you were looking for me!

    I was put on 3 mg Lunesta (comes in 1, 2, and 3 mg). It has worked fairly well with absolutely no hangover the next day. The first couple of nights I took it, I was out within five minutes, but it takes more like 30 minutes now.

    I've been happy with it. Cost me $45 for one month WITH my prescription plan! However, I was able to order the refills through our mail order and it was only $40 for three months' supply.

    Hope this helps!
