which sugars have the most minerals?

i'm experimenting with a mixture of coconut sugar/palm nectar and brown rice syrup and am having some good results thinking of sugar as a helpful supplement when mineral levels and macro-nutrient levels are topped up. other than molasses i can't think of many other sugar sources that would have useful minerals. thanks!

edit: its interesting that people are reading this as supplementing minerals via eating sugar. thats not what im saying. i am eating sugar because i want to, in the context of a grass fed organ rich and shellfish based diet with coconut oil and milk, etc. and i'd like to eat sugar that is the least refined, unbleached, etc. hence the brown rice syrup and palm sugar.

BsM is probably the best answer or maybe real maple syrup.

@korion - i have recently found that eating brown rice syrup is best for me. starches cause fatigue and some digestion issues, other sugars and fruits cause digestion issues and tongue pimples. i mix the BRS with shredded cocnut and/or gum-free lite coconut milk, raw pastured egg yolks and sometimes vega sport protein powders. ala PHD i try to get 400 cals of the BRS in a day or more. since carbs increase the need for minerals i eat lots of grass fed liver and trader joe's canned/frozen wild shellfish.

I'm actually interested in this as well : if I am gonna eat starch/glucose, I want to eat the best sources of it. Though I don't think the mineral profile alone says enough.

travis, i'm not supplementing minerals via sugar - i'm eating sugar for it's benefits and would rather do that with unbleached sugars.

This would be my "recommendation" if I could recommend that someone "get their minerals" from something that is primarily sugar!

Disgusting? OR shockingly delicious? Just kidding, I'm retching over over just thinking about it.

Really shouldn't count on getting minerals from sugar sources unless you somehow process liver into some digusting sugar slurry.

Are you including blackstrap molasses in your definition of sugar? I've read it's high in minerals.

dates are probably your best bet depending on what your gonna use it for. Nothing wrong with a little bit of refined sugar in the context of a nutrient rich diet.
