Looking for an exciting or new way to use natural, tasty and versatile honey? Then you have come to the right place!
Honey is one of our most natural foods, with a variety of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Honey has no fat, no additives, is 100% natural and has been proven in scientific studies to sustain blood sugar levels for much longer periods than refined sugar, sports gels and ‘carbo snacks’ which means it is great for everyone including kids, recreational sports of all levels to stop you from ‘crashing’ and feeling lethargic.
Honey & Diabetes
Honey is also a good alternative natural sweetener for people with diabetes. Healthy eating for people with diabetes means focusing on eating lots of carbohydrate (particularly low GI foods) and high fibre foods, keeping fats low and enjoying moderate amounts of sugar and honey. People with diabetes can still enjoy honey in their diet and it is best combined with low GI foods such as:
- Breads – multi-grain, rye, oats and fruit breads
- Breakfast cereals – porridge, natural muesli, high fibre cereals containing bran and wholegrain
- Pasta and rice – all pasta, Basmati rice and Doongara rice
- Vegetables and legumes – sweet potato, sweet corn
- Fruit – most fruits
- Dairy products – milk, yogurt, custard and low fat ice cream
- Start your day right
