Which Type of Sugar Is Healthiest For You?

This ingredient is found in most homes and you surely have it at home: sugar.

But, if you take care of your health, or want to start paying more attention to it, it is better to learn what is the best kind of sugar to have at home. Right?

Today, we have endless options of sugar on the market shelves: granulated, caster, brown, organic, and a lot more.

And that’s where this question comes: which one is the best for our health?

Sugar can vary according to its origin and processing. Most sugars are made from sugarcane, but today there is also coconut sugar.

Brown sugar has a darker color because it is less processed than the other types, that are whiter.

Learn about 6 types of sugar and their characteristics:

Caster sugar
The most well known of all sugars.

Granulated sugar
Just like caster sugar, the granulated type also undergoes a process where chemicals are added to make it white and tasty, but that results in a loss of vitamins and minerals.

Brown sugar
This sugar is extracted after cooking sugarcane juice.

Demerara sugar
Similar to brown sugar, it undergoes a light process of purification and refinement, without any chemical additives.

Organic sugar
It doesn’t have any artificial ingredients in its composition.

Coconut sugar
It can be a substitute for the cane sugar, extracted from the fluid of coconut palm flowers, and doesn’t go through any refining or adulteration processes.

It is important to remember that, since sugar is a simple carbohydrate it must be avoided and consumed only in small amounts, preferably keeping it away from your daily eating habits.

The excessive consumption of sugar may cause issues, such as weight gain, diabetes, and inflammation in the body.
