A: Energy comes from the carbohydrates and the honey. Honey is a natural sugar and lower on the glycemic index than refined sugar. The glycemic index of foods refers to how quickly and how high 'blood sugar' (glucose) increases in comparison to pure glucose. Honey is a mix of simple sugars: glucose and fructose (there are others but in smaller proportions).

In honey the glucose & fructose molecules are not joined so they can be used straight away.
