Is honey healthier than sugar?

  1. There are people who say that you can fight all kinds of ailments with honey. It would also be healthy, because it would contain substances with an anti-bacterial effect. But scientifically there is no evidence that eating honey makes you healthier. What is actually in honey? In fact it is a form of sugar: a mixture of glucose and fructose. There is little difference with other forms of sugar, such as granulated sugar and cane sugar. In your body, all types of sugars are broken down and digested in the same way. Honey does contain slightly more water than granulated sugar. It contains slightly fewer calories per 100 grams.

Good fabrics

  1. In addition, honey contains a small amount of trace elements, minerals, vitamins and protein. That would have a positive effect on health. But this amount is very little. Not enough to contribute to your total intake of these nutrients.

Natural product

  1. Because it is made by bees, some people think it is better than sugar. After all, it is natural. But sugar also comes from nature, for example, it comes from sugar beets and sugar cane. In short: Honey is and remains sugar, so it is better not to eat too much of it.

Different types

  1. Most honey consists of nectar from different types of flowers and blossoms. But sometimes a lot of honey is made from one type of plant. Then you get, for example, lime honey, acacia honey, lavender honey, rose honey, clover honey and heather honey, rapeseed honey, rosemary honey, thyme honey or chestnut honey. All varieties are liquid sugar.

Eating honey for throat complaints

  1. Honey has been used for centuries as a remedy for throat complaints. But does it also work? The European Food Safety Authority EFSA has not approved a health claim about eating honey, no scientific evidence has been found.

Honey not for babies

  1. It is better not to have children under 1 year old give honey. They can get sick from the traces of the harmful ones bacterium clostridium botulinum, which is sometimes found in honey. In front of everyone older than 1 year is honey safe, including for pregnant women and breastfeeding women.

Save

  1. Honey does not spoil quickly because of the high amount of sugars. It is best to keep it closed, in a dark, cool place but not too cold. If it gets too cold, the honey can solidify. That is no problem: a few seconds in the microwave and it is liquid again. You can still eat crystallized honey. It looks less appetizing, but is still safe to eat.
