The element of honey is a fructose, glucose, an oligosaccharide, and a gluconolactone (honey acid), etc. Others contain various amino acids, the vitamins, and minerals, etc. , and very nutritious food.

Quality of honey on the market
In honey, there is kinds such as pure honey, the Canadian sugar honey, and the refinement honey. Pure honey is honey that doesn't do addition and the quality governing at all.
The Canadian sugar honey is honey that added the isomerization fructose liquid and other saccharides up to less than 40%. In general, it is this Canadian sugar honey that is marketed. Especially, the cheap one of the price is this. The refinement honey is removing of the smell and the color, etc. from honey.
The honey marketed in Japan has often added sweeteners such as the isomerization fructose liquid and the sugar water. The addition of the isomerization fructose liquid and other materials is said that the measurement of the ratio of the distinction and the addition of the isomerization fructose liquid and honey is difficult in the current analysis technique.

Notes of honey use
Honey is seen only to be good, and there is a point about which it should take care as follows, too.

However, the state of a digestive organ and enterobacteria might go and botulinus still go even to intestines for a baby not normal. Therefore, do not give honey to less than one-year-old baby.
It never dies by honey though it seems that botulinus dies in honey because honey has the bacteriocidal action because botulinus is dormancy. It is possible to kill it out if it heats it.
