We just couldn’t leave “honey” unmentioned… Honey is by far one of the healthiest alternatives for sugar, if not the best. This golden liquid is an excellent and delicious source of powerful antioxidants, all of which have been associated with numerous health benefits, including reduced inflammation in the body, reduced chances of developing type 2 diabetes, and minimized cancer risk.
It seems that honey can decrease glucose levels and hyperglycemia, too. However, not all types of honey are created equal. That’s why you should always search for raw/organic honey.
Which one is which?
As a general rule, raw honey has a cloudy and opaque texture due to the honeycomb debris, whereas most types of processed honey appear super clear and smooth.
