Honey

Honey is the substance produced by honey bees from the nectar of blossoms or from secretions of or on living parts of plants, which they collect, transforms and combines with specific substances, and store in honey combs.

Honey consists essentially of different sugars, predominantly glucose and fructose. Besides glucose and fructose, honey contains pollen and other substances and may include sucrose, maltose melezitose and other oligosaccharides (including dextrin) as well as traces of fungi, algae, yeasts and other solid particles resulting from the process of obtaining honey. The colour of honey varies from nearly colourless to dark brown. The consistency may be fluid, viscous or partly to entirely crystallized the flavour and aromas vary, but usually derive from its origin
