Honey Nutrition Facts
Honey is a natural sweetener, has antioxidants, and is fat free and cholesterol free.
Honey is flower nectar that has been processed by bees. The bees ingest the nectar and enzymes break down complex sugars into simple sugars. The bees then place the honey in wax cells and fan it with their wings to remove the excess moisture. Honey is 80% natural sugar, mostly fructose and glucose. Honey is much sweeter than table sugar.
Honey contains vitamins B6, niacin, riboflavin, pathogenic acid. It also contains minerals and amino acids.
Each tablespoon of honey contains about 60 calories. Honey has a healthy gylcemic index (GI) because its simple sugars are gradually absorbed into the bloodstream. It may be better than some other sweeteners for those who need to watch their sugar intake.
