How much is the sugar content of honey?
A bee will visit 50 to 100 flowers at a time to collect nectar, and it can collect nectar 10 to 20 times a day.
It takes 30 minutes for each bee to collect honey. About 30 mg to 50 mg of honey is collected each time, which is about the same as its body weight.
Except for rest time, bees can fly about 160 kilometers a day.
Honey contains more than 75% sugar, most of which are fructose and glucose, and a small amount of sucrose and maltose.
Fructose and glucose are simple sugars, which can enter the blood directly without being digested, and can quickly replenish energy for the body. Therefore, honey is an excellent source of energy.
According to the results of the US Department of Agriculture, a spoon of honey is about 20 grams and contains about 15 grams of sugar, which can provide 64 calories for the body.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends 20 grams of sugar per person per day, with a maximum of 50 grams.
Therefore, it is recommended to consume 1 to 2 spoons of honey a day.
