Cut comb as shown above is the actual structure of the bee's comb complete with the honey it contains - these are the food stores of the beehive, perfectly designed cells which hold honey and are formed in the instantly recognisable hexagons from wax that the bees secrete from glands only when they cluster together and raise their body temperatures to a specific level.
Honey is one of the sweetest naturally occuring products but as well as containing sugar in many different forms - fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, raffinose and dextrose - it also contains various amino acids and enzymes that are required by bees to keep healthy.
Rodger and Carol Dewhurst are the bee-keepers and real experts - their website has a stack of information about bees and honey production.
