Hello, I went through your query, Sugar is sugar, whether white, brown or raw. All sugars are pretty much of a muchness. One teaspoon of any has around 68 kilojoules (16 Calories). They are all sources of sucrose OR glucoseOR fructose OR combinations of these three but very little in the way of vitamins, minerals or antioxidants. Previously it is said that jaggery it good for health, now a days pure jaggery( only content as sugarcane) is not available. There things used in moderate as required is not a health concern for a healthy individual.
