Honey is nature’s own sweetener
Honey is a 100 % natural product produced by western honey bees. Honey consists mostly of fructose, glucose and water. In addition to these, honey contains protective nutrients such as vitamins, enzymes and minerals.
Honey can be running, soft or solid. The consistency of honey depends on which flowers the honey bees have used to make the honey. Honey can be used in cooking and baking instead of sugar.
Honey contains less calories than sugar
Since honey is sensed as even 1,3 times sweeter than regular sugar, a smaller amount of honey is needed to achieve the same sweetness. Honey also contains 20 % less calories than sugar. Therefore you will get the same sweetness from honey as from sugar with 40 % less calories! In other words, for every 100 grams of sugar you will only need 70 grams of honey.
Remember that honey shouldn’t be given to children under the age of one (1 year).
