What Type Of Sugar To Use For Feeding Hummingbirds

Question From: b. smith - Belleville, Michigan, United States
Q: I was reading your article today and you stated that making hummingbird nectar from white sugar and water is an adequate and easy feed for humming birds. this is true, but you left out one important note. They can only use pure cane sugar. The additives in regular white suger cause harm to the humming birds. Isnt this a known fact?

A: Current research does not support that information. Best Nancy
