I found a thread on this subject, but I can't seem to decypher the answer so...... can sugar be frozen? Found a great deal on sugar, but I just bought some so I don't really need it yet. Can you freeze sugar?
I have always placed my excess sugar in the freezer without any problem. I simply place a plastic grocery sack around the manufacturer's packaging and tie it tightly to prevent excess moisture from penetrating the paper sack the sugar comes in.
Bugs don't live in sugar. Yes, there may be bigger varmits that may want to eat sugar (or rather the paper and glue that contains it), but you just seal it in plastic or containers away from them. Freezing is just wasting space.
You freeze (or vacuum seal) rice, flour, or other grain product for a day or two since there is a potential for larvae in them that will hatch and infest your pantry. Freezing briefly will kill the larvae. It does not need to be kept in the freezer.

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
