    Difference between honey and sugar

    What are the nutritional differences between honey and sugar? Is one better for you than the other, or are they both garbage? What is an acceptable level of either to use/consume daily?

    Thanks

    depends on the point of view, honey might have more vitamins or such but at the end, they're both sugar & have calories so.

    Honey actually has more calories by weight than table sugar does, but it is sweeter. Honey also has some unique medical properties that aren't fully understood but are often embraced in alternative medicine. Manuka Honey in particular is prescribed quite often--just google it. However, the Manuka honey is ridiculously expensive. In the end, they are both comprised of glucose and fructose, and are digested similarly. Honey does have a lower GI, but as we all know, GI can be quite useless in real life. I like the taste of honey better with a lot of stuff personally, and it definitely helps if you've got a sore throat.

    ye honey is a natural analgesic. manuka is very unique indeed it cant actually cultivate bacteria, which is why we use it on so many wounds.

    i think the reason people go for it is the sweetness different + the difference in glycaemic value.

    Honey offers no nutritional advantage over white table sugar except one of taste preference.

    But it cures the common cold and it doesn't cause any of the ugly fat that table suger causes*

    Question

    Micronutritional density?

    idk, not a scientist, but honey has like 200 different things in it, enzymes, minerals etc.
    I would bet my life that a real raw unheated honey is better than something bleached and processed made in a lab by man. Same as I would bet my left ball with confidence that chicken breast is better than protein powder, that Olive Oil or avocado has better quality fat than that of Muscle Milk despite the manufacturer's claim that MM is a great source of fat, and that banana is better than maltodextrin.

    Honey contains trace amounts of some minerals, but the amounts are insignificant. If you feel the need to include honey for the micronutrients over regular sugar, then your diet needs revamping.

    By the way, a tablespoon of table sugar contains 46 calories; a tablespoon of honey contains 64.
