Glycemic index is the key here. The higher the index of the food, the faster it will raise your BG.
Pure honey has a typical ranking of 58 on the scale. But some varieties are even lower. The glycemic index of honey depends on how much fructose is in that particular batch. Honeys that contain 35 to 45 percent fructose, for example, score around 35 to 48 on the glycemic index. White table sugar, also known as sucrose, is higher, with a glycemic index between 58 and 65. https://www.livestrong.com/article/270875-honey-vs-sugar-glycemic-index/
