Both Manuka Honey and sugar are made up of glucose and fructose. In white sugar, these are combined to form sucrose. As honey is higher in fructose, it tastes sweeter than the equivalent amount of sugar.
Manuka Honey is the healthy, natural alternative to sugar because you can use less honey and still get the sweetness you're used to.
