Default Honey or sugar

Which one do you prefer to use to sweeten your tea? I use honey. Is honey really that much better does anyone know?

Both are simple sugars, but with different tastes. Its just a matter of personal preference, and whether it fits within your dietary restrictions. I don't like tea personally.

Best wishes to you. Hope you have success in all that you do.

Honey has antioxidants in it that are beneficial to the body. It has an aquired taste though. I am not much for honey so I will take the sugar please.

I have heard that local honey is good for the immune system and for allergies.

So, it gets my nod.

I don't use either...I like black tea, as is...but...



Unlike honey, table sugar lacks minerals and vitamins (hence it's been often called empty calories), they draw upon the body's nutrients to be metabolized into the system. When these nutrients are all used up, metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol and fatty acid is impeded, contributing to higher cholesterol and promoting obesity due to higher fatty acid on the organs and tissues. That is why it is not uncommon for fat people to suffer from malnutrition and many other health related problems. So the message is, honey vs sugar, if you are watching your weight, honey will be a smarter choice than sugar. Besides the differences in nutrition, I feel sugar can never compete with honey in taste. Though both are sweet, honey has such a unique flavour that can be very useful and superior in many foods and beverages. The range of honey floral varieties is so vast that experiencing for yourself the uniqueness of each variety and being able to appropriate each variety to exploit every possibility to complement and improve taste of different types of foods becomes a skillful art.

I do not care for honey that much but in drinks it is different. I will drink some tea with honey in it to add a sweet taste to it. I cringe at the thought of using sugar since I do not want to load up on sugar.
