Honey is a natural sugar made by bee's. Did you know that there is company that makes Sugar Free Honey. Did not think that was possible but it is true. Wal Mart sales rite next to the regular honey they were giving samples of it out at the store today and it taste pretty good. WOW What will they think of next?

Rather than thinking of it as sugar free honey, think of it was honey flavored artificial chemicals. Then decide if you want to eat it.

I looked at that. I think it's made of the same stuff that causes the laxative effect in the sugar free candy. I will just stick to my Splenda.

I have tried the sugar free honey in my tea, and I liked it. It is hard to decide for me when to use something like real honey or sugar as compared to a substitute. Either way, there is something in the product that isn't good for you.

I used to use it sometimes before I was diagnosed with diabetes. It mixed nicely with peanut butter for PB sndwiches, they didn't sog out as much as with regular honey. But since I don't eat PB sandwiches much anymore I haven't used it too see what it would do to my BG. The carb count is pretty close to regular honey I believe.

I am going to get some and make the recipe for granole I have and try it. The saple I recieved at the store did not do anything to my BS so hopefully I will be ok using it.

I know exactly what you are refering to the company is Honey Tree Sugar free Honey.
Do you know what it is that they make this honey out of?
Here are the ingredients for sugar free honey:
Maltitol Syrup - sugar alcohol product.
Acesulfame K
Malic Acid
Natural & artificial flavor
I can't have sugar alcohol products as it does something to my system. I will stick with a small amount of the real thing.
Thanks for posting.
