molecular mass of sugar C12H22O11 = 12(12.01) + 22(1.008) + 11(16.00) = 342.31                     
cellular respiration sugar C12H22O11 --->    6 CO2 +6 H20      six water and six carbondiokside

The relation of water / carbondiokside  mass is 18/48   So one kilo sugar makes 38% water + reliesed water from dilution  it is abouit 400 g water.

20 kg honey or winterfood produces 8 litre water inside the hive.

Finksy, coolio.  And then I wondered where the bees got water to consume during the wintertime in the hive, hee, hee, but now this is the obvious, eh?  Have a wonderful and greatest of days.  Cindi

Here's a good article on what happens to the sugar syrup fed to bees. Go to the website and scroll down 5 or so pages until you come to the article  titled: `The Inside Story of Feeding Sugar to Bees'

I like the part about the water consumption/release and the directive to feed early enough to still allow comb building while the summer forager bees are still of sufficient numbers to expidite things.  Valuable information.

Dick, that really was a wealth of information, some really good reading.  It is now fully understood by me WHY it is important to get the fall feeding done early, my bee course instructor told us how important it was, but I didn't FULLY understand why.  Good stuff.  Thanks for sharing.  Great day, great life.  Cindi
