Honey taste test

Honey is a great pre-workout food. Its unrefined sugars are easily absorbed into the body, while its simple carbohydrates provide an excellent source of energy without any of the artificial preservatives, colourings or sweeteners found in commercial energy drinks and gels. Produced all over the world, the taste, colouring and consistency of honey can vary greatly depending on the plants and flowers supplying the pollen and the environment in which they live.
