The Truth about Honey

Posted on December 13, 2019 | No Comments on The Truth about Honey

Diabetics need not worry which kind of honey is most suitable for their condition. According to a recent study, there’s no difference between buckwheat honey and cotton honey, or clover honey and tupelo honey in terms of glycemic index (a measure of how much and how fast a food raises blood sugar levels).

Though there might be a difference in taste, a group of researchers from San Diego State University found out that the four kinds of honey relatively fall under the same range of glycemic index, between 69.13 and 74.14. All samples contain the same amount of carbohydrate.

High glycemic index of a food is not advisable for diabetics and those with weight problems as it has an adverse effect on the blood sugar. Honey and sugar almost share the same glycemic index. However, according to the researchers, you don’t need too much honey in glazing food since it is sweeter compared to sugar.
