In brief: Allthesame basically

Simple sugars are simple sugars.
Minimal differences re: vitamin, trace mineral content between raw sugar, molasses (does supply some iron), turbinado sugar. Agave is largely fructose; honey is a mix. Hf corn syrup has more fruc than corn syrup (all glu)-similar to cane sugar (sucrose)limit intake of simple sugars in general to limit possibly unwanted calories. All simple sugars provide 4 cal/g.
