Is Honey a Good Alternative for Sugar in Diabetic Diet?

Q:

We usually take honey as healthy and beneficial food. I am wondering if it can work as an alternative in the diabetic diet?

 

A:

As a matter of fact, honey can affect your glucose level as well as sugar. So patients with diabetes could use a smaller amount of it in some recipes. However, obvious advantage cannot be expected.

Compared with granulated sugar, honey actually has slightly more carbohydrates and more calories per teaspoon. If you are addicted to the taste of honey, go ahead with moderate amount.
