      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.

      I've never found a valid reason for freezing sugar.
      I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

      Yes you can freeze sugar. If you don't protect it from the moisture it will get a little lumpy when you do take it out.

      Don't you have to worry about bugs getting in it, just like flour??? I mean, I really don't know, that's why I asked. Thanks.

      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.

      Freeze rice??? Oh wow, I'd never heard that one. I keep extra rice in my pantry a lot. I had no idea about rice. I did know about flour. Thanks for the tips.

      What is the shelf life of sugar ?
      Sugar, properly stored, has an indefinite shelf life because it does not support microbial growth.
