What is the difference between white and brown sugar?



  1. 0 Votes

    Brown sugar is refined white sugar with a molasses syrup mixed in, then re-dried. Nutritionally, not much is different between the two: brown sugar contains about 17 kilocalories per teaspoon, compared with 16 kilocalories per teaspoon for white sugar; brown sugar does contain calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium, which white sugar doesn’t, but since present in such small amounts, there is no real health benefit to brown sugar. The real differences between the two are taste and the effects on baked goods.
