Vitamin packed, natural honey combines glucose and fructose, when compared to white sugar which is sucrose. The basic sugar types in honey are more easily assimilated into the bloodstream and may help our body in absorbing essential minerals and vitamins.
Because natural honey is quickly and easily assimilated by the body, it can provide us with a boost of energy within a few short minutes of taking it. Honey is used as a natural and healthy alternative to white sugars and provides more 'sweetness' ounce per ounce than white sugars.
Natural Honey acts as the perfect accompaniment to royal jelly - adding a touch of sweetness and flavor to offset the slightly bitter taste of fresh royal jelly. It is also used in some cases to naturally preserve the liquid royal jelly, avoiding the need for refrigeration or chemical preservatives.
