It’s often regarded as something we should avoid as much as we can, but we just can’t get enough of it. So as you prepare yourself for a healthy summer, keep reading this blog as we uncover some facts about your beloved sugar.
Essentially, the two most popular types of sugar we consume are white and brown sugar. Both are similar, nutritionally and calorie-wise. The only difference lies in the flavour, colour and the processing. Basically, brown sugar is white sugar with molasses and is considered as raw sugar.
Whereas refined brown sugar has more liquid and has slightly fewer calories per gram than white sugar, both are pure carbohydrates that further add fat in the body and cause problems. So both are equally harmful to your health and are not recommended for diabetic patients or those looking to lose weight.
Refined sugar goes through some processing before reaching you, so you can always look for alternatives that are slightly better in terms of the impact they have on your health. That said, sugar must always be consumed in moderation.
One such alternative is organic brown sugar, which comes from sugar cane. Natural sugar cane is full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fibres, and phytonutrients that help the body digest the naturally occurring sugar. It also contains vitamin A, C, B1, B2, B6, which work synergistically with the minerals to nourish the body. Brown sugar also undergoes lesser processing than traditional white sugar. Additional to molasses, it contains various types of essential nutrients and can be a source of an instant energy boost.
When you eat any type of refined sugar, your body has to pull stored nutrients from itself to be able to properly digest the sugar. This is commonly called “leaching”. Refined sugar robs calcium and other minerals from your bones, tissues, and teeth in order to be digested. Since calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in natural sugar cane, and needed the most for proper digestion of sugar, it is the most important for your body to retain.
So as you can infer, the potential health benefits give organic brown sugar the upper hand when compared to its refined counterparts. Which brings us to our variant of raw sugar. Our Organic Brown Sugar is ideal for your kitchen if you’re looking to make the switch to a healthier lifestyle.
