Honey can impact blood glucose levels differently depending on its type and quality. But generally, honey contains sucrose that can rapidly spike your glucose level. Honey also contains carbohydrates that can raise blood glucose levels. Always control the portion of your honey intake to avoid a sudden spike in your glucose level.

Stabilising your glucose level while eating honey
• Try to choose high-quality, raw honey that is not mixed with other ingredients.
• Consider combining honey with foods with a low glycemic index, such as nuts, seeds, or non-starchy vegetables.
• Consider monitoring your honey intake throughout the day.
• Replace honey with stevia, erythritol, and monk fruit, which are all low-calorie sweeteners.

The consumption of honey has been shown to have a moderate effect on blood glucose levels. When consumed, the body rapidly absorbs glucose and fructose in honey. However, the glycemic index of honey is almost equal to sugar due to the presence of sucrose. Therefore, it is recommended to pair honey with high-protein foods.
