Is brown sugar any healthier to eat than white sugar?

Most brown sugar is refined sugar that has been treated with color and flavor, and so there is no evidence to suggest that brown sugar is healthier than white. Golden demerara sugar and the light and dark brown sugars have traces of minerals and vitamins, so it could be claimed that they are marginally healthier than other sugars. However, to gain any benefit from these minerals and vitamins you would have to eat an enormous amount of sugar, which would not be healthy.
