Honey is an aromatic, viscous, sweet material coming from the nectar of the plants, which bees collect and alter it to feed them to a denser liquid and eventually store it in their honeycombs.
It is a natural food that does not undergo any treatment and is made up of many ingredients that in total exceed 180.
Simple and complex sugars of honey, minerals, fatty and organic acids, flavorings, antibiotics, vitamins, enzymes and other ingredients that coexist in honey give it unique qualities.
For the production of honey, the bees use the nectar of the flowers or the honeycomb of various trees such as pine, fir, etc. created on the trees by the intervention of some insects. Bees to gather a kilo of honey need, depending on the circumstances, to visit between 3 and 8 million flowers, making 100 to 120 thousand routes. The bee-carrying material is first processed into their stomachs and then into the hive by adding enzymes and various other ingredients. At the same time, they eliminate some moisture and finally store it in the honeycombs.
