Honey Vs Sugar
by Ruth Tan

One:

One tablespoon of table sugar or sucrose contains 46 calories, while one tablespoon
of natural sweetener honey has 64 calories. Though honey may have more calories,
we actually need to use less of it since it is sweeter than table sugar. As a result, you
may in fact consume even less amount of calories that you would with sugar. And in
the long run even though honey is more expensive, it may be more economical than
table sugar.

Two:

Compared to table sugar, honey has a healthier Glycemic Index (GI) which measures
the negative impact of a given food on the blood-glucose level. The lower the GI
rating, the slower the absorption and infusion of sugars into the bloodstream and
hence a more gradual and healthier digestion process.

Three:

Unlike honey, table sugar lacks minerals and vitamins (hence it's been often called
empty calories), they draw upon the body's nutrients to be metabolized into the
system. When these nutrients are all used up, metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol
and fatty acid is impeded, contributing to higher cholesterol and promoting obesity
due to higher fatty acid on the organs and tissues. So the message is, if you are
watching your weight, honey will be a smarter choice than sugar.

What are their differences?

Both sweeteners contain glucose and
fructose. However, for sugar, in the
process of manufacturing, the organic
acids, protein, nitrogen elements,
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.
