    Sugar questions

    I'm no doctor so please get this checked out by someone that is suitably qualified. Ambrosia or similar have not been mentioned in detail in the thread thus far so I add it for completeness. It differs from sugar and fondant as it consists of inverted sugars (water, glucose, fructose and...

    I believe it to be the Glossa. I think the examiner was trying to prevent confusion by making sure there was a distinct difference in the points arrows B and L terminated.

    An odd request

    Although I have a few years behind me my sons did dabble with D&D for a while. From memory I believe D&D has feeding cycles that tap into health. The fact that a Honeybee has the ability to hold food in a second stomach could provide relief in this area.
