Three kinds of people are not suitable for honey

01 Honey is rich in nutrients and is a popular diet. Many new mothers also add honey to baby's supplements to regulate taste and increase nutritional value. However, experts point out that infants under one year old are not suitable for honey. Honey is easily contaminated by Botulinum toxin during brewing and transportation, because bees may bring pollen and honey contaminated by Botulinum toxin back to the hive during pollination. Botulinum Bacillus spores have strong adaptability and can still survive at 100 C. Because of the weak gastrointestinal function and the poor detoxification function of the liver in infants, especially in infants less than 6 months old, Botulinum toxin is easy to reproduce in the intestine and produce toxins, thus causing poisoning. Symptoms of poisoning often occur 8 to 36 hours after eating honey or food containing honey. Symptoms often include constipation, fatigue and loss of appetite. Although the risk of botulinum infection in infants is very low, doctors still advise that honey and its products should not be given to infants until they reach the age of one.
02 Diabetics can not take honey gills per 100 grams of honey carbohydrates, about 35 grams of glucose, 40 grams of fructose, about 2 grams of sucrose, about 1 gram of dextrin. Glucose and fructose are monosaccharides, which can be directly absorbed into the blood without digestion after entering the intestine, thus raising blood sugar. Sucrose and dextrin can be absorbed slightly after hydrolysis. Therefore, the effect of honey on raising blood sugar is particularly obvious. From this point of view, people with diabetes can not take honey.
03. Liver cirrhosis patients can not drink honey. Generally speaking, hepatitis B patients are very suitable to drink honey, because the monosaccharides provided by honey do not need liver decomposition and synthesis, which can reduce the burden of the liver, but liver cirrhosis patients can not drink honey, because it will aggravate liver fibrosis.
