Does honey’s sweetness level vary, and how does it compare to other sweeteners?

Primarily composed of fructose and glucose, honey provides more sweetness than sugar and has a natural appeal. Bakers can cut back on the total amount of sweetener added by using honey. Honey’s sugar profile does change slightly between floral sources. Fructose can range from 30.91% to 44.26% and glucose can range from 22.89% to 40.75%.
