    Is organic sugar significantly healthier than unbleached granular sugar?

    Organic foods are grown without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or other carcinogenic chemicals.  All produce grown organically is healthier than non-organic produce.

    I am not convinced that the difference is significant.  I am more concerned with the amount of processed sugar in the diets of industrialized society. The amount of  sugar, corn syrup, being consumed is far more than our bodies can handle.  Also, the high carb diet of my neck of the woods is not helping since carbs and sugars serve similar functions in the body.  I do suspect the quality of the organic sugar might be better. I will have to look into that.  I always thought white sugar got it's color through the extraction of molasses instead of bleach.  Not an expert, so I am looking forward to the other answers.

    If the organic and regular sugar were processed the same way, there is very little difference between the two. Scientific studies have repeatedly shown little difference as far as nutrition and other factors go between processed organic an traditional foods.

    For produce, organic may have some benefits; there will be a lower chance of harmful chemicals on the skin of your produce if you buy organic. But for a processed good like sugar, the only tangible benefit is your peace of mind.

    In this case, it doesn't make much difference.  Simple sugars like sucrose from sugarcane, is not really that healthy, regardless.  It is better to use alternatives like Honey or get your sweets from fruits, like fructose, for example.  Don't get me wrong, table sugar is great for quick, cheap recipes and an easy way to sweeten your coffee or tea, etc., but I wouldn't pay the extra money for the unbleached granular sugar version.  Now, comparing white rice to brown or white bread to wheat, is totally different!
