Honey May Be Better Than Table Sugar

APP (Associated Press of Pakistan), 9/3/2007

Honey is sweeter, has lesser calories, healthful antioxidants and pre-biotic properties.

Scientist said it might be better than table sugar for people who want to lose weight, a private radio reported.

They investigated claims that certain types of honey have a better glycemic index than others and found that one honey is as good as another at least as far as glucose content is concerned.

The researchers found very little difference in the Honey's glycemic indices. They ranged from 69.13 to 74.14. All were very close to table sugar's glycemic index of 68. The researchers note that honey is sweeter, but consumes fewer calories.
