    As you probably know, bees gather nectar while pollinating flowers.

    Flowere nectar is composed of sucrose and water. Bees have an enzyme called invertase, which converts sucrose (disaccharide) into glucose and fructose (monosaccharides).

    Another enzyme, glucose oxidase, converts some of the glucose to gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which help preserve the honey.
