Wonders of Bees

Condensed nutrients collected by bees from plants
Magic fluid of the beauty of life
Natural sweetner,so therapatic

Imbued with strength in autumn and spring
Standing with unseen eyes to fight unseen militias

Typical Honey Analysis

Honey is a sweet and viscious fluid produced by honeybees.It is natural.It stipulates a pure product that does not allow for the addition of any other substances.
Honey is beautiful and has a natural antibacteria called "serotoline" to relax the body system.It has attractive chemical properties for baking,and a distinctve flavour which leads some people to prefer it over sugar and other sweeteners.Most micro-organisms do not grow in honey because of its low "water actvity" of 0.6.Thereby,making it precautionary and risk-free in composition.
However,it is important to note that honey frequently contains dormant "endospores" of the bacterium "clostridium botulinum",which can be dangerous to infants as the endospores can transform into toxin-producing bacteria in the infant's immature intestinal tract,leading to illness and even dealth.
In the hive the bees use their "honey stomachs" to injest and regurgitate the nectar a number of times until it is partially digested.The bees work together as a group with the regurgitation and digestion until the product reaches a desired quality.It is then stored in the "honey comb"
Honey is a mixture of sugars and other compounds.With respect to carbohydrates,honey is mainly fructose(about 38.5%) and glucose(about 31.0%) making it similar to the synthetically produced "inverted sugar syrup" which is approximately 48% fructose,47% glucose,5% sucrose.
