We look at commonly told stories around our healthy lives and share what some researchers in the health field actually feel about the myths.

MYTH: Brown sugar is healthier than white sugar

BUSTED: Sugar that’s the colour of dirt doesn’t make it more “natural” or healthier than its white counterpart. The colour comes from a common residual sticky syrup, called molasses. Brown sugar retains some of that molasses. In fact, brown sugar is mostly white sugar with some molasses - so refining it further would give you white table sugar. While molasses contains some vitamins and minerals like potassium and magnesium, there is not enough in your standard brown sugar packet that should make you reach for it if you’re trying to eat healthier. As far as your body is concerned, white and brown sugar are one-and-the-same.
