contains lesser calories than sugar. Moreover, honey is sweeter than sugar so it
is added in less amount to get the same level of sweetness. Sugar lacks
proteins, enzymes and vitamins where as honey contains proteins, enzymes,
vitamins and anti-oxidants that body requires for healthy function. Honey has
lower Glycemic Index (GI) than sugar.
