The Complexity of Honey Nutrition for Honey Bees

"Honey contains nearly 200 different substances, many of which are essential for the health of the colony.  Simple sugar water contains two substances: sugar and water.  Microscopy shows that bees fed sugar water have intestines that are shriveled and dull in comparison with bees fed honey, whose intestines are plump and shiny.  Of course, it suits beekeepers who are driven by the desire to maximize honey ‘production’ to pretend that the honey removed from a colony can easily be replaced.  It makes them feel better.  But, sadly, it does not make the bees feel better."
