Honey vs Sugar

So Honey vs Sugar : Which is better?

So many people rave about honey , and say it is very good for you . At the same time , many people say that sugar is bad for you. Are they really that different , or is it just marketing ?
If honey is actually much better for you than sugar , should not we try to substitute honey for sugar ? And if you're on a diet, there are not many calories in honey anyway?
I felt that the best way to approach this was to do a little research on sugar and honey nutrition .

Now when you look at the values ​​of honey , some of them are a little different from those found elsewhere in another part websites. This is because honey is a natural product , so there are slight variations , depending, for example , where the bees go out to eat , with a variety of flowers and flowers they have visited, and the different properties of these flowers. During this research , I used several sources of data, based on the information you want to share , and sources of information are obviously based on different batches of honey. However, the differences are very minor as a whole.

Now, before comparing the Honey vs Sugar  .... A couple of quick notes important !

You can read about nutrition in honey, and think that the values ​​are impressive, but I thought it was also important to express these values ​​as "an ideal daily value percentage " ( % DV ) based on a typical daily caloric intake 2000 . believe that this is the best way to put honey in perspective , so we can really see that honey retains its value in our diet.

Honey vs Sugar :  Calories and comparison of carbohydrate

You can see that 100 g of sugar contains more calories than 100 g of honey. Remember that honey is composed of approximately 17% water ( no calories ), while granulated sugar contains no water .
Granulated sugar is 100 % carbohydrates of sugar. Honey carbohydrates also consists almost entirely of sugar, however, the types of sugars are completely different. Granulated sugar is 100 % sucrose , while the honey only consists of 1.5 g of sucrose, and the rest is fructose and glucose. This is especially important if you are an athlete or involved in sports, due to the provision of energy supply in the short and sharp.

If you diet and want to replace honey with sugar on a low calorie diet can help keep your energy level - but I would not recommend eating a lot of it!

Honey vs Sugar: Comparison of Vitamin

Honey contains vitamins could , while sugar contains no vitamins. However, note that the vitamin content of honey is not very large - for example, if you eat 100 grams of honey , you only get 1% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C - and you will have a great calories (more ! 300 ) .

On the other hand , if you eat 100 grams of raw, fresh , unpeeled apple , that 8% of your daily requirement of vitamin C , and consume only 52 calories ! Sure , apples are other vitamins too, but if high energy is a priority, then the honey is better.

Well, I said I wanted to put things in perspective! ...... Now ,read on!

Honey Vs Sugar: protein and amino acid content compared

Honey contains high quality protein 100 g of honey and given a score of 19. The higher the score of 100 , the better. In this sense, honey is better than sugar. But what happens to that raw apple ? Believe it or not , the humble 100g Apple gets a score of 31!

Sugar on the otherhand, gets a miserable zero! 

Honey Vs Sugar : Comparison of mineral content

Sugar has little mineral content . Honey is the best , however , are a small percentage of the recommended daily intake . In other words , you still have to find other sources of these minerals in complementary feeding.

Therefore, Honey vs Sugar - What is the conclusion?

It seems that honey is more nutritious than granulated sugar . If you play sports , then I think the honey due.
However, if the vitamins and minerals that are then honey is very high in calories , so you will not eat much, just for the pleasure of vitamins and minerals , otherwise, you gain weight . Get a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
