The Healthiest Sweetener

Some sweeteners do have some nutrition, others are pure empty calories. An article in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association measured the antioxidant content of many of them. Which one is the healthiest (in alphabetical order)? Agave nectar, blackstrap molasses, brown rice syrup, corn syrup, date sugar, dark brown sugar, light brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, raw cane sugar, plain old sugar, or turbinado sugar.
