Honey is a sweet aliment produced by honey bees (and some other species) and derived from the nectar of flowers. Honey gets its sweetness from the mono saccharides fructose and glucose and has approximately the same relative sweetness as that of granulated sugar (97% of the sweetness of sucrose, a disaccharide) Honey has attractive chemical properties for baking, and a distinctive flavor which leads some people to prefer it over sugar and other sweeteners. Generally, honey is classified by the floral source of the nectar from which it was made. Honeys can be from specific types of flower nectars, from indeterminate origin, or can be blended after collection. Cooking with honey help to make delicious taste of sweet recipes.
