Composition of honey

The main components of honey are:

  • glucose
  • fructose
  • water
  • pollen

The sugars are present in variable but on average around 72%. Of these, fructose and glucose increased from about 70% in honeydew honeys up to be very close to 100% in some honeys.

Except for a few cases, the fructose is always represented more sugar in the honey. The presence of fructose, honey gives a higher sweetening power to refined sugar but also a source of energy that our body can use longer. In fact, to be used, it must first be converted to glucose and, then into glycogen, the "fuel" of our muscles.

Honey is therefore recommended to athletes before beginning physical activity, thanks to the caloric intake of 3,200 kcal / kg.
