Yes depending on how you use them. Sultanas are a concentrated source of calories, sugar, and nutrients. They supply an amount of dietary fiber both soluble and insoluble, as well as some iron, potassium, and B vitamin.

28 grams of sultanas on your cereal (this is a lot of sultanas) will add 82 calories, around or equal to three teaspoons of sugar. The advantage to sultanas is they are not empty calories; they will deliver fiber and protein as well. For every 50 grams of sultanas, they have around 1.2g protein & 1.2g protein fiber, not to mention the vitamins.

To summarize three teaspoons of sugar offer nothing except energy, 28 grams of sultanas offer vitamins, protein & fiber, as well as the energy.
