➡️Why do we use honey as a sweetener instead of white sugar? Honey goes through less processing than sugar to become ready to serve. If refined sugar is consumed in quantities greater than your body needs, it can provide a quick burst of fuel followed by a sharp drop in energy. Honey has a lower GI value than sugar, meaning that it does not raise blood sugar levels as quickly. Your body may find sugar harder to digest than honey, because it doesn’t contain enzymes. Since ancient times, honey has been used as both a food and a medicine. Honey is better option when used instead of refined sugar, which is 100% empty calories.
➡️Does honey provide any additional benefits? Honey is composed primarily of water and two sugars: fructose and glucose. It also contains trace amounts of enzymes, amino acids, B vitamins, vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants. Many of the antioxidants found in honey are classified as flavonoids. Flavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties, which may provide some health benefits. Did you know that honey may also help ease coughing and sore throats?
➡️ What are some other important facts about honey? Be sure to choose a high-quality brand because some lower-quality honey may be mixed with corn syrup or sugar. Honey tends to be sweeter which can allow you to use less but still achieve the desired sweetness.
