Honey is a natural sweet substance produced by honey bees. The color, flavor and aroma of honey differs depending on the nectar source the bees collected from. Honey has thousands of varietals, all dependent on where the bees foraged for the nectar. Colors range from water white to dark amber and flavors range from mild to bold. Generally, the flavor of light-colored honey is milder and sweeter while the flavor of darker honey is bolder and more robust.

Honey is classified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture into 7 color grades: water white, extra white, white, extra light amber, light amber, amber and dark amber. It is based on millimeters from 0 – 114 with 0 being the lightest and 114 being the darkest.
