Honey is a very good substitute for sugar for the people who are trying to start a healthy life.

  • It is healthy and tasty and fulfills the craving for sugar without having an equal amount of calorie to add to our body. Adding to that, honey is also a very healthy food to be consumed that has many more other health benefits as well.

  • Among the other benefits of honey, number one is its antibacterial property. Honey has the capacity of killing bacteria because of its naturally acidic composition.

  • Along with that, honey has the ability of soothing throats. This is very useful for the children because medicines and antibiotics may harm their health and use of honey is a very natural process of relieving respiratory infection for children.

Honey is a good substitute for granulated sugar but you still have to be careful you aren't putting honey in everything because honey naturally has a ton of sugar! It is also important to note that in order to see the real health benefits of honey, it has to be sourced locally. Store bought honey won't have the same effect because the bees didn't use local pollen to make the honey. :)

thanks for this insightful comment.
