Honey - an amber fluid made by honey bees (Apis mellifera) from the nectar of flowers, has been ‘nature’s sweetener’ for centuries and is ‘superior’ to sugar. It contains only about 30 percent glucose and less than 40 percent fructose. And there are also about 20 other sugars in the mix, many of which are much more complex, and dextrin, a type of starchy fiber. This means that your body expends more energy to break it all down to glucose. Therefore, you end up accumulating fewer calories from it.
