Background: It has been indicated in several studies that honey consumption has beneficial effects on risk factors for cardiovascular disease. We aimed to assess the effect of honey intake compared with sucrose on blood pressure and fasting blood sugar in young healthy subjects.
Materials and Methods: We enrolled sixty healthy subjects with the age of 18 to 30 years to this randomized trial for one month. Subjects were randomly allocated to honey and sucrose groups. Honey group received 70 gram of honey per day and sucrose group received 70-gram sucrose per day for one month.  Systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured and fasting blood sugar was collected from all participants at baseline and end of the intervention. The lipid profiles of the participants were measured using the enzyme kit and compared in both groups of honey and sucrose at the beginning and the end of the intervention.
Results:  In our trial, there was no difference in mean of the baseline FBS, SBP, and DBP between honey and sucrose groups (P > 0.3). From baseline to 4 weeks honey could reduce the levels of total cholesterol, TG, and LDL and increased HDL in healthy young subjects, but intake of sucrose increased total cholesterol, TG and LDL and decreased HDL. We adjusted confounding variables including age, physical activity and some nutrient intake in all of these analyses.
Conclusion: Honey consumption could decrease total cholesterol, TG, and LDL and increase HDL, but sucrose intake increased total cholesterol, TG, and LDL and decreases HDL. Further studies are required to confirm our findings.
