Honey's Dark Side: It's Good

Choose your honey like you choose your chocolate: Go dark.

Dark honey, like dark chocolate, can be a better source of health-protecting antioxidants than lighter-color counterparts. Here's why dark honey is different.

The Buzz on Honeydew
In a study of Spanish honey varieties, researchers looked at three honey groups: floral (the lightest shade of honey tested -- bees make it from the nectar of blossoms); honeydew (the darkest tested -- bees make it from sugary substances that insects leave on trees and plants); and blends (in-between shades of honey made from a combo of floral and honeydew). The dark honey showed the greatest potential for helping to protect cells from harmful substances (free radicals) that cause aging and disease.

Researchers suspect the protection comes from the antioxidant-powered phenols and amino acids found in the sticky stuff.
