What is honey?

Honey is a sweet viscid material elaborated out of the nectar of flowers in the honey sac of various bees as defined by the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.

In plain English honey is a sweet food made by honey bees using nectar derived of different types of flowers.

The elements found in this product of nature are not as diverse as one may think, honey is composed by a complex of naturally flavoured sugars as well as trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.

The honey-making process the bees follow is really interesting and worth knowing if you are curious about this marvellous product, and Guillermo & Julián will soon help you discover how they get the honey from the apiary to the glass jars you enjoy at home using ancient Mayan techniques.
