    The long-term effects of feeding honey compared with sucrose and a sugar-free diet on weight gain, lipid profiles, and DEXA measurements in rats. - PubMed - NCBI

    So sucrose made the rats more fat. The honey fed rats were at the same fat level as the sugar free rats.

    Anyone know why?

    Shortage of micronutrients would be my starting hypothesis.

    maybe the sweetness of food made animals eat more food on sugary diet and their calculated calorie intake is faulty.

    for example the honey they mentioned 21percent water,according to nutrition data its 17percnt water,but they measured it themself.

    i dont know maybe the study has some fault and maybe not!

    There was also a study where sugar increased fatty liver, but honey didn't. Chris Masterjohn talked about it. Honey's more than sugar.

    Sugar could be problematic in my experience when it isn't balanced out with vitamin and mineral supplementation.

    Here is the full text link.

    In the sugar-free diet they used amylose (a resistant starch). The honey they used (honeydew honey) has a higher mineral content and more "antioxidants" than regular honey. The rest of the diet consisted of skim milk powder, casein, used oil (to enhance oxidative damage), starch, mineral mix, vitamin mix, water and lots of cellulose. The non-honey groups got some extra water.

    The food intake in the three groups was practically identical which I find strange. In ad libitum fed rats I would expect a bit more deviation. (I am no expert in statistics though.)

    Figure 1 looks like the weight of the sucrose group was already higher at baseline.

    It would be interesting to know how much undigested stuff the feces of the rats contained. I couldn't find information on that. The authors seem to have focused on the benefits of honey. I found another publication from that study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19296910

    The study was funded by Fonterra Brands Ltd. New Zealand.
