From Salem, Oregon, USA:
My mother has just been diagnosed with diabetes. She is not on any medication; she controls it through diet. Can she use honey for a sugar substitute? She has been on a low carb diet for some time now and has lost 38 pounds and her diabetes is in control.
Honey is also a form of sugar and should be counted in as part of her carbohydrate allowance. 1 Tablespoon of honey contains 17 grams of carbohydrate, while 4 teaspoons of sugar contain about 16 grams of carbohydrate.
