Orange blossom honey
Honey is formed almost exclusively from sugars and "boasts" a high concentration of fructose. Among the sweet substances it is the only one that owes all its characteristics to nature (plants and bees) since it does not undergo any manipulation by man, before arriving on our table. Its great advantage is that it can supply the body with readily available calories that are not harmful to the body: this is why it can be consumed in peace by healthy and less healthy people, but above all by athletes.
Honey is composed of fructose, glucose, water, sugars and different substances, including organic acids, mineral salts, enzymes and aromas and many others. Honey is a food of high nutritional value, easily assimilated. Glucose provides energy that can be used immediately, fructose is metabolized in the liver and constitutes an energy reserve.
The richness of this food is due to its sugar composition and to the considerable presence of fructose, which make honey a "unique" product. Fructose, in fact, gives a particular sweetening power and a prolonged energetic effect because, while glucose is burned immediately, fructose, with its emollient properties, remains "available" for the physical longer. This is why the advantages are superior to those of sugar. One of the most important functions is antibacterial and antibiotic.
