Hummingbird feeders

Is it really good for hummingbirds to feed them processed sugar water? Is there a better feeding solution to put in a hummingbird feeder, rather than the processed sugar/water mix?

Birding Expert - George H. Harrison

There appears to be no healthy problems from feeding hummingbirds a solution of one sugar to four parts of water. The water need not be colored because most feeders are already red or orange.
