Raw Honey versus industrial sugar, sucrose

Are there really any differences?

Honey is considered a natural product while sucrose (beet sugar, cane sugars, etc.) is a highly processed industrial product.
Both of these sweeteners contain glucose and fructose.
In industrial sucrose/sugar, the glucose and fructose are bonded together and form the disaccharide sucrose. In honey, these components are separate.
Fructose is sweeter tasting than glucose.
Unlike glucose, fructose does not rapidly convert to energy.
The manufacturing process for cane sugar or beet sugar often eliminates other components, such as protein, vitamins, minerals, organic acids and nitrogen elements.

Honey is known for its natural antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, which is not the case for cane sugar and beet sugar.

Honey has a lower glycemic index than sugar - it therefore increases blood glucose levels more slowly. (Note: there are different types of honeys and their glycemic indices will vary).

There are many other reasons why honey is better for you!!
