Honey supplies two stages of energy. First, your body absorbs honey’s glucose for immediate invigoration and then the slow-absorbing fructose provides smooth, sustained energy.
Honey Vs Sugar: What's the difference?
Both sweeteners contain glucose and fructose. However, during the manufacturing of sugar, the organic acids, protein, nitrogen elements, enzymes and vitamins in the sugar cane are destroyed, whereas honey, a natural sweetener, subjected only to minimal heating maintains all of the beneficial properties. Honey has certain beneficial antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which are not present in table sugar.
Here are three key points of comparison between honey and sugar that will make you feel good about eating honey:
1. A lesser amount of honey is required for sweetening than processed sugar. 2. Honey is slowly absorbed into the bloodstream. 3. Honey has nutrients whereas processed sugar has none.
Spring Honey is the lightest in color and thinnest in consistency. It is often the most flavorful and has very distinctive floral notes.
Summer Honey is more amber in color and has a medium consistency. The taste is often richer and can be slightly acidic, while still floral in nose.
Fall honey can range from dark amber to molasses color with a thick consistency. The taste can be as strong as molasses and even burnt marshmallow.
There are thousands of honey varietals found around the world (more than 350 in the U.S. alone), and each has its own distinctive floral character. We craft a proprietary honey blend not only to avoid single sourcing, but more so to take advantage of the beautifully diverse flavors and aromas that various honeys bestow on our waters.
