The honey bee obtains its all nutritional  demands from nectar and pollen. In the case of nectar and pollen limitation, beekeepers use a substitute. It has been a long time that sucrose is used as the conventional substitute for nectar and pollen in the bee feeding to provide its nutritional needs during winter and stimulation of spring's larval nourishment. High fructose corn syrup is another potential substitute that is used recently in bee feeding. Therefore, in this review, the effects of honey bee feeding with fructose syrup have been investigated. Life span and hive population are among the important factors that have to be considered in the case of feeding honey bee with various sources. According to the results of previous studies, high fructose corn syrup (containing 55 % fructose based on the dry matter) is a potential carbohydrate source for the honey bee compared to sucrose. In this review, the results of these studies have been investigated. The Scopus database was used for search purposes and three seraching algorythms (until 2020) was carried out as follows: (TITLE (honey AND bee) AND TITLE-ABS-KEY (hfcs)) and (TITLE (honey AND bee) AND TITLE (sucrose)) and (TITLE (honey AND bee) AND TITLE-ABS-KEY (fructose)).
