Thank you for your attached E mail. We do not use animal products at any stage during the production of our sugar products. All of our products are suitable for vegetarians.
We used to use bone char to decolourise sugar, but that is no longer the case. Since the beginning of this year we have switched to using a mineral carbon derived from coal for decolourising the sugar.
I hope this answers your question

Can you please tell me for sure which sugars that you produce are free
animal contaminants such as bones used in the bleaching process.
I understand that some sugar companies do not use animal bones for charcoal
these days, I want to find those companies and purchase their products
as we are part of a vegetarian group and keep away from things where
animals are exploited or harmed to make the product.
Thank you for your help, I look forward to your positive response.
