From time to time, you might find a hard, dark colored granule mixed in with your organic sugar. Don't worry! This is often a burnt piece of sugar or organic plant fibers inherent to the sugar.
The artisanal nature of our sugar involves heating sugar cane juice or coconut nectar (in the case of coconut palm sugar) until it crystallizes. Occasionally, plant fibers might accidentally be cooked down in the process as well. They are harmless. It is similar to seeing a darker spot on baked or toasted artisan breads.
