Sugar Futures/Interactive Brokers/IQ Feed

Hello everyone,
I just read Fat Tail's post from Sept. 3rd 2013 where he wrote:
'A good and reliable solution is to combine Interactive Brokers with NinjaTrader and a DTN/IQ (or Kinetick, if you do not require ICE Futures) data feed.

-> first-connect NinjaTrader to DTN/IQ or Kinetick (for backfill and real-time data)
-> second-connect NinjaTrader to Interactive Brokers (for order management)

This solution has next to no shortcomings, the only limitation that comes to my mind is

-> that you cannot trade sugar futures, because Interactive Brokers quotes them in USD (which is contrary to contract specifications) and DTN/IQ and Kinetick quote them in cents

The last sentence bothers me. Do you have any idea how could I trade Sugar without using IB as a data provider? Has there been any update on this issue? Unfortunately I haven't found any.
Thank you very much for help.
