Is honey healthier than sugar?

Not really. Honey is largely a strong solution of sugars called fructose and glucose, which affect teeth only very slightly less than ordinary sugar (saccharose, or sucrose). There is nothing especially healthy about honey. The traces of micronutrients it contains are too small to make any significant contribution to our diet.
