Honey in Coffee

By Dr. Keerthy Sunder

Is Honey in Coffee Healthy?

Absolutely. Yes, honey is healthy when used in coffee. Find this surprising? Well don't. Honey is a natural sweetener with a long shelf life, countless health benefits and great taste, no matter what you combine it with.

But is coffee another matter?

Most people usually add milk or cream, and sugar to their coffees. But nowadays, the excessive use of sugar is the reason for many health problems. If you like your coffee sweetened and are considering a healthier option, honey is just the perfect solution for you. So, if you are a coffee lover who's looking for an alternative sweetener than sugar... we'll explain how and why you should be reaching for that honey jar.

In this article, we'll discuss in detail why you should consider honey in coffee instead of sugar. Then, we invite your questions at the end. We are happy to hear your personal views on this matter! Please ask! In fact, we try to answer all legitimate questions personally and promptly.

Can You Put Honey in Coffee Instead of Sugar?

Of course you can!

Your coffee becomes sweet, tasty, and healthy at the same time.

Although it is true that honey has more calories than sugar, the body absorbs and metabolizes these sweeteners differently. If we make a comparison solely by the calories, a teaspoon of honey has 21, while a tablespoon of sugar contains 16 calories. However, honey and sugar differ in molecular structure and health benefits. Here's what makes these two sweeteners different.

Honey consists of mainly glucose and fructose. Glucose is a basic sugar that's easily metabolized in the body. Fructose doesn't burn as quick as glucose, but it still used by the body.

Processed, white table sugar contains disaccharides. These are far more complex sugars. Disaccharides are metabolized and transformed into glucose and fructose by the body. However, they take longer to process and are not burned so fast. When white sugar is consumed regularly in large amounts, disaccharides are stored in the body and transform in fat.

Got the difference now?

Mainly, the molecular differences between honey and sugar have significant effects on the quantity of calories that stay in your body.

So, not only can you put honey in coffee, it is highly recommended, especially if you are considering a healthier lifestyle.

Is Honey In Coffee Good for You?

Yes, honey is one of the healthiest natural sweeteners on the planet. Honey has been reported to exhibit anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiatherogenic, antithrombotic, immune modulating, and analgesic activities. It is a well-known antibiotic and has been used for centuries as a way to ease colds, flu, sore throat, and skin problems.

Honey is commonly used as an alternative sweetener by tea drinkers and those looking for a healthier option than sugar. Using honey in coffee instead of sugar is way better for you. Your coffee is still sweet, only in a different way. Look at what nutritional value you bring to your drink when you add honey:
Honey contains:

  • Amino acids.
  • Antioxidants.
  • Enzymes.
  • Minerals: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, zinc.
  • Vitamins: A, B (the B- complex set), C, D, and K.

What about sugar? We add it to early everything. When people think of sugar, their first and most common association is with something sweet. But, sugar is far from healthy. In large quantities, sugar can cause:

  • Cavities.
  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Increased cholesterol.
  • Weight gain.

Honey in Coffee Healthy

Yes, honey in coffee is healthy. These are three reasons why you should substitute sugar with honey in coffee:

#1: Honey sugars taste sweeter than those in white sugar. It takes less honey than sugar to sweeten your coffee.
#2: Because the sugars in honey are processed faster, they're less likely to be converted into fats and stored in your body.
#3: Sugars in honey have a lower glycemic index than those in white sugar. This means honey will have less effect on your blood-glucose levels.

CONCLUSION: Despite the fact that honey has more calories than table sugar, the sugars in honey are healthier than those in white sugar.

Does Honey In Coffee Taste Good?

Yes! Honey tastes good in coffee. But it takes some getting used to.
When it comes to taste, sugar has a slight advantage over honey. In the end, that's why most people use sugar instead of honey to sweeten their coffee. Depending on the honey, some people find the combination of honey and coffee strong. There are those who simply can't drink it; they find the taste of honey clashes with the bitterness of coffee.

We understand that taste is a major concern for coffee drinkers. If the taste worries you, try a few different honeys in a few different types of coffees. Surely, you will find a combination that's suitable for you.

You never know until you try!

Don't be afraid to experiment, especially with Honey Love!
