Is Honey Good for You

I’ve always loved honey. Honey on toast, on top of biscuits or rice cakes, or in a sandwich with peanut butter, it doesn’t matter, its all delicious. But is honey actually good for you? Or is it just another unhealthy, sweet product?

When it comes to honey, there’s both good news and bad news.

The honey debate – is it just another form of unhealthy sugar?

Honey is made up largely of sugar, and much of it is in the form of fructose. Eating a lot of fructose is not good for you, and it can contribute to a number of health issues.

This is why there is such a stand against products loaded with high-fructose corn syrup, and why these products should generally be avoided. But since honey also contains fructose, is it also on the do not eat list?
