What is Honey?
HoneyO HoneyPot

Honey is the substance made when the nectar and sweet deposits from plants are gathered, modified and stored in the honeycomb by honey bees. The definition of honey stipulates a pure product that does not allow for the addition of any other substance. This includes, but is not limited to, water or other sweeteners.

Pure, raw and unfiltered honey is the one of the world’s best health foods. It is full of natural nutrients and has no expiration date. Honey has been found in the ancient Egyptian tombs and after 3,000 years was still edible. It needs no refrigeration or preservatives. The most important thing to remember about honey is that the less that is done to it the healthier it is.

Honey is a sweet, usually viscous, liquid made by bees from flower nectar and stored in the cells of the hive for food; consumed fresh or after processing, it is usually used as a nutritive sweetener.

Honey is one of the oldest sweeteners used by man and was highly valued by ancient Egyptians for its medicinal and healing properties. The colour, flavour, consistency and quality depend on the source of the nectar, as well as the production method used. In general, darker the colour, stronger the flavour.

Honey is a natural sugar produced by bees from the nectar in certain flowers, mainly clover, heather, furze, and lime. The type of flower affects the flavor and the color of the honey. Thick honey has a proportion of the wax left in it. Honey can also be bought in the comb.

Honey, produced by bees from flower nectar, ranges from mild-flavored varieties, such as clover and orange, to more distinctively aromatic varieties, such as thyme. When measuring honey, oil the measuring cup or spoon to facilitate pouring.

Honey, derived from the nectar of flowers, aided by bees, still used in many desserts such as nougat; contains dextrose and fructose. Its flavour is influenced by the type of plant tapped by the bee (orange blossom, lavender, clover, pine, etc).
