Is honey better for you than sugar? Table sugar is higher than honey on the glycemic index (GI) (a scale of how your body breaks down and digests carbohydrates, and therefore importantly how fast food raises your blood sugar). The GI varies with the amount of fructose (table sugar is 50:50 glucose and fructose), honey contains more fructose, as a result it is sweeter. Importantly honey also contains numerous nutrients and antioxidants that are not found in regular table sugar.
