What is more healthier to eat... is it the white or the brown sugar? I have watched on tv that the brown is much healthier. Is it true?

It is true that since brown sugar has not been completely refined it still maintains some nutrients, unlike white sugar which has only a sweet taste, but no nutrients. Even so, brown sugar should be consumed only in small portions, as it is not the best source of nutrition.

Wow... thanks for the info. Much as I want I really avoid add-ons for sugar in my food but I can't help it. I like sweet food...

Have you tried using real maple syrup, honey, or molasses as sweeteners? They all have much higher nutritional value than brown sugar.

Brown sugar is better than white sugar. My mom always say it is ever since I was still a kid and I don't even really know why. =o)
