I had a look on the Calorie Counter, but could not find the calorie / kilojule content in honey as apposed to sugar. Do you perhaps know?

Dear Angie
According to the SA Food Tables, honey provides 1271 g per 100 ml or 64 kJ per teaspoon and white sugar contains 1615 kJ per 100 g or 81 kJ. Keep in mind that honey is also rich in sugars, but it contains nearly 17% water which is why it is lower in energy.
Best regards
