Answer: Hello dear. Yes, to an extent. Honey is a natural source that is sold either raw or pasteurised. Its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, which are not present in table sugar, are well documented. However, it is still sugar and has a similar calorie content as plain sugar. Honey should thus be consumed in moderation. Reduce the sugar or honey you are adding to your hot beverages by half.For a lower calorie and lower sugar option, go for natural maple syrup. It has about 25 per cent less (natural) sugar than honey and refined white sugar. If you want a zero-calorie option, add sweeteners or dried stevia leaves to your drink instead. Hope it helps.
