So what I have done is compile some information for you to sift through and I give the amounts to use. So with what information Im giving you here should asnswer your questions good enough for you to make an informed decission.
Sucanat (which is a concatenation of Sugar Cane Natural) is non-refined cane sugar that has not had the molasses removed from it like refined white sugar. It is essentially pure dried sugar cane juice. The juice is extracted by mechanical processes.
Sucanat is generally accepted as a substitute for brown sugar. Unlike regular brown sugar, sucanat is grainy instead of crystalline.
"More importantly, Sucanat supplemented herb has an aroma and flavor all its own. It won't cover up the natural smell of your plants, but it'll add an extra richness and flavor to the strain. Some varieties that I've seen grown with Sucanat take on the flavor so much that they smell like carmel candy when you break up a bud. Joints rolled with Sucanat-grown ganja taste delicious all the way down to last ember burning against your fingertip. Bong hits linger on your tongue for hours, and even a quick hit off a pipe during lunch break becomes a momentary orgasm of sweet, savory goodness as the smoke rolls of your lips."
We all know that white sugar is like the devil. It's got zero nutritional value and rots our teeth. It also makes us feel crappy when we eat it because it makes our blood sugar level spike up and then come crashing down. Immagine what it does to our poor plants.

use two tbs per gallon, it gives it carbohydrates wich the plant has to make to photosynthesise, so it lightens the work load on the plant and all the extra carbs can be used to build bud, and you also get the benifit of the enhanced flavor of the weed.
If you are using another type of carboload then only use one tbs per gallon
