Our expert says:
There is very little difference between white and brown sugar as regards nutrient composition. Both types of sugar have approx. the same energy content, namely brown sugar 1561 kJ and white sugar 1612 kJ per 100g. Brown sugar contains a small amount of calcium and iron, but if you only use 3 t per day (15g) this will not really contribute to your calcium or iron intakes. You can experiment with using brown sugar in recipes, but keep in mind that the taste will be slightly different.
