Naturopathic Medicine

Honey is a source of riboflavin and vitamin B6. It also provides iron and manganese. A 3.5 oz. (100 g) serving of honey provides 304 calories, mostly as 82.4 g of carbohydrate (almost all of which is sugar), 0.3 g of protein, and 0 g of fat. However, honey is more likely to be consumed by the tablespoon (15 g), which provides 64 calories, 17.3 g of carbohydrate, and 0.1 g of protein.
