Honey bee

Description

A sweet, viscous fluid produced by bees from the nectar of flowers. Honey is a mixture of Fructose, Glucose, Dextrose and water (~14-20%) with trace amounts of enzymes and oils. Its composition varies slightly depending on the source of nectar. Honey was used since early times as a sweetener and as a plasticizing additive to watercolors, Tempera, Size, and Glair.
