Brown is better…or not

I always, always, always thought that brown sugar was in some way healthier than white sugar. This morning, Scott asked me why brown sugar is healthier than white sugar. I responded with, “I’m not sure. It’s just one of those things that everyone knows is true, but we don’t know why.” Then, I gave some analogy that I absolutely can’t remember right now.

Well, I told him I’d do some research. After a quick google search, I came upon an article about how sugar is made. Please read this.

I was shocked! How can something that tastes so good be SO BAD for us? And, why oh why did I really think brown sugar is healthier than white sugar? Who fed me such lies? Ugh! I feel like I need to go take a shower or something. Yuck.

    So… brown sugar is as bad as white sugar, but it sounds like raw sugar is still bad for us, but less processed? hmm. I never knew there were so many chemicals used to make sugar!!
