Of course, you're right about not being able to filter out the sugar with a course filter.  The 'filter' that I use for straining my pasta doesn't work.  But, have you ever used a water purifier?  If not at your house,  then surely, you've at least seen them at someone's house or in the store, right?  Brita?

Even dissolved in water, sugar is still sugar.  You can't see it, but, surely, you've tasted water with dissolved sugar, right?  It's still sweet, right?  You just can't see it.

> Mike, if you mix sugar in water, it becomes sugar-water.  You can't filter out the sugar, it pours right through whatever is in that filter.  How can a membrane remove sugar?  Can you pee through those membranes and then deionize it, then make coffee with it?  I don't think so.  You might just do that, but there's no way I'd drink it. The ONLY way to remove solubles from H2O is by distillation.
