Nutritional value of honey

Nutritional value of honey

We often say that natural honey is a unique in its composition and incredibly healthy product.

But what is the nutritional value of honey?

Nutritional value is the properties of foods that provide the body’s needs for energy and nutrients. Let’s see how useful honey is.

100 grams of natural honey accounts for:

Water 17.10 g
Proteins 07.3 g
Fat 0.0 g
Carbohydrates 82.4 g
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) 0.038 mg
Vitamin B3 (niacin) 0.121 mg
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) 0.068 mg
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) 0.024 mg
Vitamin B9 (folacin) 2 μg
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 0.5 mg
Calcium 6 mg
Iron 0.42 mg
Magnesium 2 mg
Phosphorus 4 mg
Potassium 52 mg
Sodium 4 mg
Zinc 0.22 mg

From this table it can be seen that the main component of honey is carbohydrates, mainly glucose and fructose. The carbohydrates in honey are easily, 100% absorbed by the body, which provides the absolute value of this product for humans.

Energy value is about 304 kcal – 1272 kJ.

Let’s compare honey with other foods valuable in the diet:

Beef – 218 Kcal
Pork – 357 Kcal
Sour cream – 206 Kcal
Cheese – 364 Kcal
Milk – 60 Kcal
Sunflower oil – 899 Kcal
Bread – 259 Kcal

The nutritional and energy value of honey also largely depends on the variety. In general, however, the nutritional value of honey is quite high and allows us to consider this product one of the most valuable for the body. And almost 100% assimilation and content of vitamins and microelements makes honey an irreplaceable product not only in the cold season, but all year round.
