For each tablespoon of honey consumed, the body is supplied with 64 calories of pure energy.Honey is considered a natural substance, and according to the United States National Honey Board, it's a natural product that does not allow for the addition of other substances, such as water and sweeteners.

Honey's composition, on average, is 17.1 % water, 82.4 % carbohydrates and 0.5 % proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The average carbohydrate content is mainly fructose (38.5 %) and glucose (31 %). The remaining 12.9 % of carbohydrates is made up of maltose, sucrose and other sugars.
