Six Easy Ways To Replace Sugar In Your Diet With Raw Honey

Experts agree that too much processed, or refined, white sugar in the diet is one of the leading causes of health problems in both children and adults.

Refined sugar

How is it possible to cut down refined sugar from your diet while still making eating an enjoyable experience? The answer is simple: raw honey. 

Raw, unfiltered honey keeps all of the beneficial properties of honey. 

Scientific research has proven that the inherent antimicrobial properties in raw honey hinder the growth of dangerous microbes, germs and bacteria that lead to many diseases.

Supermarket honey undergoes high temperature pasteurisation in order to create a smooth clear runny texture and delay crystallisation.

Supermarket processed commercial honey

This heat treatment destroys anything of benefit in honey and effectively renders honey as useless as sugar mixed in water.

The heat treatment in commercially-produced honey also destroys any beneficial enzymes that give the honey its tremendous health properties.

Our honeys are delicious enough to be eaten on their own by the spoonful, but here are still six ways to incorporate this natural sweetener into your diet in place of refined sugar: 

1. Tea or Coffee

Replace your usual spoonful of sugar with our butterscotch tasting Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey from Uruguay as Georgia of Beyond Balance has done here, or our Raw Two Rivers Honey from Argentina. Your very own natural hot drink sweetener. (Note: this use of raw honey is for flavour, not for medicinal benefits)

2. Granola
