Honey is the mixture of sugars that bees produce from plant nectar. On average, honey is nearly 20% water, and contains about 40% fructose, 30% glucose and 1% sucrose. The remainder is a mixture of other sugars and minute traces of naturally present acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Honey’s flavor depends on the source (clover, orange blossom, sage, etc) of nectar.
