WHAT IS HONEY?
Honey is a naturally sweet substance produced by bees from plant nectar, or from secretions from the live parts of plants, or secretions of plant sap-sucking insects, which bees collect and convert, by blending it with special substances in their bodies. They then remove excess water, as they deposit and store it in the honeycombs of the hives for it to mature.
In simple terms, in order to produce honey, bees make use of nectar as the key raw material which they collect from blossoms and/or the natural juices that certain plants secrete and/or the juices which certain insects secrete, feeding themselves from these sources. Following this, they combine these juices with specific substances in their bodies, and once excess water has been removed, they produce honey, which they store in honeycombs.
Honey is antibacterial , antifungal and antivirus product.
The quality of honey depends on the beekeeper and the bottler. When the correct practices are in place, both regarding beekeeping and bottling, the quality of the honey remains high, while the flavour, aroma and colour remain intact, just as nature intended.
