Which is better to sweeten my food and drinks? Maple syrup or honey?

Well both are natural, contain antioxidants, but they are different.  Look at the grid below:

                                 Maple syrup             Honey
Cal (1 Tsp).                     52                                64
Sugar (g/Tsp)                12.4                            17.3

Pure maple syrup should be your first choice as sweetener because it contains fewer calories and sugar. Indeed, it is lower fructose and higher mineral content than honey.
