What is the difference to palm sugar from the Asian store?

Classic palm sugar is often mixed with brown sugar or the sugar of various palm trees. With the cheap “palm sugar block”, the nectar is not stirred over the fire, but rather dried in containers for hours. This usually leads to contamination. Some suppliers also mix this sugar with sodium sulfite to speed up the drying process. You can recognize sodium sulfite additions by the green shimmer of the sugar and a slightly fishy smell (caution - carcinogenic).
