Can you have honey on Whole30? No, absolutely not!

The Whole30 program bans sugars and sweeteners of any kind.

This is one of the biggest differences between paleo and Whole30. Paleo bans artificial sweeteners and added sugar, but allows natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup.

However, on Whole30, even natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup are not allowed.

  1. I’d like to understand the basis/rational behind honey being non-compliant. If natural sugar in fruit and limited amounts of juices, why would honey, being very healthy, be restricted? Thank you!!
