Honey is a wonder food, its nutritional value is very limited; honeys are mostly sugars - fructose and glucose, with some sucrose. Honey is higher in calories than sugar.
As a bee gathers nectar, it's kept in a sac where enzymes begin a refining and filtering process. When the bee returns to its hive, a chain of workers greets it; each one pumps the nectar in and out of the honey sac until it becomes honey concentrated enough to resist bacteria and molds. It is then stored in a comb to ripen until it is needed for food.
