Sugar Solutions, Syrups and Honey

Honey is produced from the nectar of flowers and tree blossom and varies in colour according to its source. Honey producers and blenders have their own colour scale which is used to gauge its market price, and in the case of blenders, to standadise their product. Syrups used in cough mixtures are often coloured for recognition purposes and sugar when refined is required to be colourless.
