Honey is safe for diabetic patients as long as it is consumed in limited quantities. This is because the natural sugar content in honey can make blood sugar spike when you consume more than your daily carbohydrate and sugar needs. There are at least 17.25 grams of sugar in 1 tablespoon of honey. So, if you want to use honey as a sugar substitute for diabetes, you can only consume a maximum of 2-3 tablespoons of honey per day. However, the requirement of added sugar intake for each diabetic patient can actually be different. This means that the limit of daily consumption of honey may be different for every individual.

The ideal is for the pre-diabetic to avoid honey! Honey is made up of simple carbohydrates, which are quickly absorbed when consumed, this raises blood sugar faster than those foods with complex sugars. Until glucose is under control and good eating habits are developed, it is best to avoid honey.

It is difficult to answer this question because it depends on what other food you have during the day, but we can say that you can have around three teaspoons (12 grams) daily.
