New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Is Honey a Better Substitute For Sugar??
so I had another question from someone that wanted to know is honey a better substitute for sugar let’s talk about that well regular table sugar refined sugar is a 50/50 split between fructose and glucose honey is 60% fructose and 40% of glucose so it has more fructose and the rationale that people use that honey is better than sugar for a diabetic it’s not going to affect your blood sugars is because it’s high in fructose and fructose on the glycemic index is 19 so it’s very very low so you’re thinking well it must be okay but here’s the problem that glucose goes directly to your liver and your liver is the organ that has to deal with it all the other cells in the body can metabolize glucose but the liver has to metabolize fructose and this is the problem so fructose is very damaging on the liver and it does create insulin resistance and it does cause a fatty liver and so no honey is not a good substitute for sugar the benefits of honey have to do with the antioxidants and some of the vitamins and the phytonutrients that can help people with allergies and also it can decrease the complications from diabetes because vitamins protect the cells but it’s not an alternative substitute for sugar and I don’t recommend it and as a side note because our environment is becoming more polluted especially with insecticides okay like glyphosate as in GMOs okay you’re seeing a decrease in honeybees I mean recently it’s like 40% less than it was several years ago and the problem is one-third of all of our food is dependent on bees for pollination and pollen is a fertilization agent to allow the plant to become more fertile and give off seeds so we need these bees but we don’t need the honey all right thanks for watching so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to subscribed

In this video, we’re going to talk about honey. Is honey a good sugar substitute?
Honey versus sugar:
• Regular table sugar is composed of 50% glucose and 50% fructose.
• Honey is 60% fructose and 40% glucose.
Fructose on the glycemic index is 19 which is low, but the glucose in honey goes directly into the liver. Fructose needs to metabolize in the liver and it can cause insulin resistance, liver damage, and fatty liver. Honey is not a good sugar substitute.
Some Benefits of Honey:
• It can help with allergies
• It can decrease complications from diabetes
