Honey bees generally produce as abundance of honey, far more the
hive can use, so beekeepers can harvest the excess for us to eat.
The colour and flavour of honey differ depending on the bee's
nectar source. Honey is primarily composed of fructose, glucose and
water. It also contains other sugars as well as trace enzymes,
minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Athletes of all ages and
abilities often include honey in their training diets with honey
included in energy drinks used during exercise programmes. Pure
Australian Honey is a safe and wholesome food for children and
adults. Honey should not be given to infants under one year of age.
