Honey is a complex mixture of carbohydrates, especially glucose and fructose, organic acids, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, pollens, and pigments. Scientific evidence for the effectiveness of honey in several experimental and clinical conditions is beginning to emerge. This study will determine the proximate composition and vitamin content of samples of honey available in Oko metropolis. The results showed that water level (16.22%), crude carbohydrate (79.29%), crude protein (3.14%), crude lipids (0.37%), crude fibre (0.20%), and ash content (0.52%) were from proximate analysis, respectively. While the other nutritional composition revealed glucose (37.64 mg/100g), and fructose (30.02 mg/100g). The results revealed that the vitamin composition of vitamin A (4.912 mg/ml), vitamin C (0.094 mg/ml), and vitamin E (0.29 mg/ml) were recorded in the sample during the study, respectively....
