Evidence shows that honey improves glycemic control in diabetes mellitus. Besides its hypoglycemic effect, studies indicate that honey ameliorates lipid abnormalities
in rats and humans with diabetes. This review also validates the beneficial effects of oligosaccharides on various abnormalities commonly associated with these disorders. Based on the evidence that honey contains oligosaccharides, we hypothesize that oligosaccharides present in honey might contribute to the antidiabetic and other health-related beneficial effects of honey.
