Honey - Complex Sugars In

Elaine writes:
I am very much aware of what you are saying and have gas chomatogrpahic analysis of the sugars in honey in my files. You can also read in the book that inherent enzymes in honey continue breaking down the bit of sucrose and other oligosaccharides as the honey stands. Even if the latter were not so, you simply cannot believe that eating refined glucose and frucose from corn could possibly be better? And especially since the refined crystallized corn sugars are really a mixture of short chain (triscaccharides, tetrasaccharides, etc.) even tho listed as dextrose and fructose. And don't you think I would have written it in the book if it were so?
