Which Is Healthier: Maple Syrup or Honey?

Back to blog

1 comment

Maple Syrup has a lower glycemic index than honey, and it has less sugar (14g/tbsp) than honey (17g/tbsp). I think maple syrup also has more minerals.

To quote [ HealthifyMe](

“Honey has more B3, B5, and B6 and vitamin C and folate than maple syrup. In contrast, maple syrup contains a vitamin that honey does not: vitamin B1. Minerals like iron, phosphorus, and copper are all higher in honey. On the other hand, maple syrup has higher magnesium, calcium, zinc, and potassium.”
