A thought towards brown sugar

I was buying brown sugar as a healthy alternate to sugar.  But when I thought about how it is made and figured out, it did not sound like an healthy alternate for the cost that we pay for it.  Brown sugar is simply white sugar mixed with molasses. Light brown sugar uses less molasses.  What is good for us is just the molasses and not the white sugar. 

Better alternates from my opinion

1.  Molasses without sulphur (you can buy it from health stores). 
             If you still want brown sugar, just mix with white sugar but for far less expensive price.
2.  Jaggery

Any thoughts!
