Health Impact
There are some health benefits to replacing sugar and HFCS with a high quality honey if consumed in moderation since honey is a source of antioxidants like phenolic acids and flavonoids. It is deemed effective in promoting oral health, protective against lead-induced bloods, and is believed to have a wide range of positive effects on nutrition and health. Honey is listed as questionable because overall sugar intake is associated with adverse health conditions, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and inflammatory diseases.Excessive sugar consumption may trigger neurological adaptations in the brain that decouple eating behavior from caloric needs and leads to compulsive overeating. The American Heart Association suggests an added-sugar limit of no more than 24 grams of sugar for most women and no more than 36 grams of sugar for most men each day.
