Sugar Commodities

Sugar is a natural ingredient that has been part of the human diet for thousands of years.

While there are many types, brown and white sugar are among the most popular varieties.

Nutritional Differences Between White and Brown Sugar

Given that white and brown sugar originate from the same crops – either the sugarcane or sugar beet plant – they are quite similar.

In fact, most brown sugar is a mixture of white sugar and molasses, which is a type of sugar-derived syrup. Molasses is responsible for its darker color and slightly increases its nutritional value.

The most notable nutritional difference between the two is that brown sugar has slightly higher calcium, iron, and potassium contents.
That said, the amounts of these minerals in brown sugar are insignificant, so it’s not a good source of any vitamins or minerals (2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source).

Brown sugar also contains slightly fewer calories than white sugar, yet the difference is minimal. One teaspoon (4 grams) of brown sugar provides 15 calories, while the same amount of white sugar has 16.3 calories.

Aside from these minor differences, they are nutritionally similar. Their main differences are their taste and color.
