Does raw honey contain sugar?

Yes, but a different sugar to refined sugar. The majority of raw honey is fructose, but it is the natural complex type of fructose. It takes longer for the body to absorb and is not an aggressive sugar like refined chemical white sugar. Therefore, it is a slow release of energy and not a massive sugar spike. This can vary between honeys. For those suffering from Diabetes, we always recommend a small amount first and measuring yourself when increasing.
