This is one of my favorite honeys and I am an avid honey user. Dark honey is reported to have more nutritional value in it . Any Idea why? or is this a myth?

After some research on this question I found that the light honeys have more water than the dark ones do which would mean more nectar from the flowers is present in the darker honeys. More nectar means more nutrition.
