I went to a nutrition seminar last year at the Cooper Center. Their take was that sugar, is sugar. Honey, raw sugar, cane sugar, agave etc is  processed the same in a healthy body. Because honey is sweeter, we tend to use less and that is good. But ultimately, sugar is sugar.

There are certain things I sweeten with one that I won't sweeten with the other. i will not put honey in my Cheerios or sugar on my ham.
Both are yummy! Both should be used in moderation.

Real sugar is better than artificial sweeteners no matter what.

Raw honey is better for you than processed honey because it still has all the micronutrients in it.

But other than that rfurlongg is correct.  Sugar is sugar no matter what form it's in.

Yes, it's better. It's not as processed. Raw honey is the best option.

Here's a GREAT informative video on sugar.  It's over and hour but REALLY informative.

Because I'm vegan, I don't use honey. My sweetner of choice is raw agave.

Anyone use monk fruit? We'll use raw honey, agave, or raw sugar as sweetners. Hubby uses stevia drops in his coffee but I think they taste wierd. I was wondering about the taste of monk fruit sweetners. They have it "In the Raw" but I have to wonder how processed it really is.
