Nutrition Q & A

Is Honey More Nutritious than White Sugar?

This is a common misconception. Honey is actually several sugars (fructose, glucose, sucrose and others) formed from nectar by bees. Ounce for ounce, the nutrients in honey and white sugar are about the same. A teaspoon of honey weighs slightly more than a teaspoon of white sugar, so it has slightly more calories. A teaspoon of white sugar has about 15 calories; a teaspoon of honey, about 21 calories. Honey is sweeter than white sugar, so you need less to sweeten foods.
