Honey

Can You Guess it Right?

Honey is healthier than white sugar.

False. Well, actually, it really depends on how you look at this product made by bees. Honey does not contain a lot of minerals (potassium, calcium, etc.), vitamins (only vitamins B and C) and enzymes, which does not really make it healthier than white sugar, on the nutritional level. However, honey can sometimes be considered as “healthier” because it generally contains less calories and more fructose and glucose than normal sugar, which can be really useful for athletes when it comes to gaining energy. Plus, it tastes really good in a tea, a coffee or on toasts. More than white sugar, indeed!

How surprising is it? Think of it when you ask for sugar in your coffee!
