Although the level of difference that Phoenixmgs is talking about is bollocks, and table sugar is categorically not "poison" in any meaningful sense, there are notable differences. Sucrose is significantly worse than monosaccharides for oral health and for streptococcus, and requires a little more energy to break down and absorb; fructose is worse than glucose for triggering genshin and addictive qualities.No, it really isn't. It's just sugar, like there's sugar in a zillion other things (many of them natural). Basically, eating 50g of table sugar a day isn't really any different from eating 50g of sugar a day from any other sources.
But yeah, nutritionally speaking there's very little difference. The biggest discrepancy is in oral/dental health. And by far more important than which kind of sugar you consume is how much you consume. Because the excess will transfer into fat deposits regardless of the source-- and the level of excess is determined by intake and usage.
