The process bees undergo to make honey is much extra complicated than honey itself. As foraging bees acquire the sugary nectar of flowers, the nectar helps help the bees’ metabolism whereas they proceed to forage and fly about accumulating valuable nectar to take again to the hive. Once again within the hive, the bees bringing the remaining nectar cross the nectar onto employee hive bees that process the nectar into honey for storage within the honeycomb. The honey is saved as a food supply for winter months. Bees maintain the hive at a heat 95 F by beating their wings and producing heat from their effort retaining the honeycomb and honey mushy.
Science of Honey
The sweetness of honey comes from two easy sugars: glucose and fructose which compose 70% of the honey. The relaxation is roughly 17% water with the rest being other sugars and minute quantities of amino acids, antioxidants, and minerals. How a selected honey tastes, smells or is coloured is set by the flower supply and the ratio of fructose to glucose.
