One tablespoon of table sugar contains 46 calories. One tablespoon of honey has 64 calories. Though honey may have more calories, we actually need to use less of it since it is sweeter than table sugar. As a result you will consume less amounts of calories than you would with sugar.
Sugar lacks minerals and vitamins & draws upon the body's nutrients to be metabolized into the system. Honey does not contain any harmful chemicals & is entirely utilized by the digestive tract.
Substitute half the amount of honey per measurement of sugar. So, 2 teaspoons of sugar for tea would be 1 teaspoon of honey. Also, substitute when recipes call for sugar.
