How about honey and syrup on the Daniel Fast?
Another question I get is about natural sweeteners on the Daniel Fast, including honey and maple syrup.
The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of the prophet in Daniel 1 and in Daniel 10, along with typical Jewish fasting principles. In Daniel 10:3 we learn this: “I ate no pleasant or desirable food, nor did any meat or wine come into my mouth; and I did not anoint myself at all for the full three weeks.”
From this verse is the boundary on sweeteners. So no sweeteners are allowed on the Daniel Fast, including honey, sugar, agave nectar, cane juice or the like.
Pray about the fast and how the Lord would call you to restrict foods. His guidance should be your final decision.
