Royal Black Wild Honey contains 80 % glucose and fructose and 3.23 % natural sucrose.
Honey contains natural sugar, which is being collected by honey bees. These simple sugars are commonly named as fruit sugars, i.e. fructose and glucose. Glucose provides energy and can be metabolized in the blood. However, fructose has to be converted to glucose by the liver first and thus cannot provide energy immediately.

At room temperature, honey is a supercooled liquid, in which glucose will precipitate into solid granules.
Wild honey is never transparent because it contains large amount of bee pollen and it is not necessarily golden in color. When shaken wild honey may turn into tiny little bubbles. Its floral scent and natural sweetness is suggestive of fermentation. Pure wild honey contains no foreign substance, therefore when placed in the freezer it may thicken but never harden.
