Why honey is harmful: the insidiousness of a popular antiviral
When the season of viruses and cold weather arrives, every mother opens a jar of honey and gives it to her children with tea. It is believed that honey has powerful antibacterial properties and boosts immunity. But there is also harm in this product.
The FoodOboz editorial team will tell you why honey can be harmful. It can be consumed in limited quantities.
Honey is high in sugar
Honey contributes to a sharp increase in blood sugar levels. Therefore, the permissible rate is no more than three tablespoons per day. Otherwise, there is a risk of weight gain and pancreatic dysfunction.
Honey is very high in calories
A tablespoon of honey contains more than 90 kilocalories. Therefore, if you are watching your diet and want to lose weight, do not add honey to your diet.
Do not give honey to small children
We are talking about babies under one year old. Honey may contain pathogens that a child's stomach cannot cope with. In addition, the product is a powerful allergen.
Do not put honey in hot drinks
Honey should only be added to warm drinks. If the liquid is hot, all the beneficial properties disappear and even compounds that are dangerous to the body can form.
