WHAT IS HONEY? AND WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Honey is a natural liquid sweet substance that is formed when honey bees collect nectar from flowers and then process it.
The word miele (Italian for honey) probably comes from the Hittite melit.
For about a thousand years, honey was the only sugar-based product available.
Ancient peoples like the Egyptians, the Sumerians, the Babylonians and the Romans used honey extensively and not only as food.
The healing properties of honey are numerous.
Antibacterial (hot milk and honey for a sore throat) with nutritional properties, especially after an illness or for people with a sugarless diet.
Honey and its by-products (Royal jelly and Propolis) are also widely used in cosmetics. You can recognize whether a honey fair of origin by reading the label precisely and he must have at least the following information:
