Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar So You Use Less

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar So You Use Less

On the average honey is 1 to 1.5 times sweeter than sugar.
Honey is very rich, sweet and delicious, so you use about half of what you would use in sugar to sweeten your food and drinks.

Both Honey and sugar have almost the same calorie content and both contain glucose and fructose. However, for sugar, in the process of manufacturing, the organic acids, protein, enzymes and vitamins in the sugar cane are destroyed, whereas honey, a natural sweetener, subjects only to minimal heating. Also, honey has certain beneficial antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which are not present in table sugar.

Try using a small amount in your coffee or tea during the day to help satisfy you and your sweet tooth, thereby avoiding sugar binges
