smelly sugar, is it a thing?

Hi there, These past couple of weeks, I've been noticing that the sugar I mostly use as a smelly odor. Nothing awful, but I could compare it to wine, or some other alcohol when on the fermenting process (I know this smell because I've been to a wine factory on a school trip, when I was younger). Some years ago, because I wanted to become healthier, and I drank too much coffee with sugar in it, I ditch all the white sugar, because I heard that's the kind of sugar that's less healthy to consume. Since then, I've been just consuming two kinds of sugar: Muscovado Sugar and Demerara Sugar (which is actually called “yellow sugar” in my country). Recently I stopped buying the Muscovado, not because I didn't like it, but because it's more expensive than Demerara. Some weeks ago, every time I go to drink my coffee, I notice a smelly odor coming from the sugar pot when I open it. The sugar tastes the same as always, so I guess it's not rotten or something, but I just wanted to know why is that. submitted by /u/Icy_Share7785 [link] [comments]
