Raw sugar and raw honey have nutritional benefits as well; ranging from B Vitamins to anti-Fungal, anti-Bacterial, and anti-viral properties. Not all sugar is toxic. I wish that falsehood would die already.
True! Also, raw honey (must be raw) will help desensitize you to certain environmental allergies. My dog suffers with environmental allergies and his holistic vet suggested I give him honey from local bee farmer. We get ours straight from the hive! The reason for local, is that the bees are collecting all the pollen my dog is breathing in everyday.
I'm not sure, but I don't think stores sell true raw honey. I think they have to heat it to a certain degree to kill bacteria.
