Out of the blue the other morning I couldn’t get the concept of getting honey on a selfmade biscuit for breakfast out of my thoughts. Picturing myself drizzling heat sticky honey over a contemporary biscuit, I headed straight to the kitchen. I put my dietitian self apart and proceeded to make biscuits, by no means thoughts the one stick of butter concerned. I chased the butter thought away and thought of how hundreds of bees labored laborious to present their candy present of honey for my breakfast. Delicious- no other phrases for breakfast that morning.

Busy Bees

The process bees undergo to make honey is much extra complicated than honey itself. As foraging bees acquire the sugary nectar of flowers, the nectar helps help the bees’ metabolism whereas they proceed to forage and fly about accumulating valuable nectar to take again to the hive. Once again within the hive, the bees bringing the remaining nectar cross the nectar onto employee hive bees that process the nectar into honey for storage within the honeycomb. The honey is saved as a food supply for winter months. Bees maintain the hive at a heat 95 F by beating their wings and producing heat from their effort retaining the honeycomb and honey mushy.

Science of Honey

The sweetness of honey comes from two easy sugars: glucose and fructose which compose 70% of the honey.  The relaxation is roughly 17% water with the rest being other sugars and minute quantities of amino acids, antioxidants, and minerals. How a selected honey tastes, smells or is coloured is set by the flower supply and the ratio of fructose to glucose.
