Yep, that's what the beekeeper/chemist told me this morning. She was playing "Which hives did I put new Queens in" . When she opened one hive and removed a frame the honeycomb had broken it. She handed hubby some of the honeycomb. I hesitated saying I have diabetes. She assured me since honey is glucose the liver would filter it and no honey would get in my blood.
I estimated the amount of honey in a small piece of the comb to be within a q to w carb serving. So decided the desire to enjoy fresh honey for the first time ever not much of a risk.
Surprise (sarcasm) honey raises BG. I was 130 about 30 minutes later. Grabbed a handful of mixed nuts to eat as I continued to photograph the honeybees. 104 in another 45 minutes.
Maybe a biologist would have understood when I explained that the liver has a little impact on blood glucose.
The honey was awesomely great!
