Since the dawn of civilization, honey was defined as "the drink of the gods". Already a thousand years before Christ knew each other and exploited all its many properties: from therapeutic use, cosmetics and cooking. The expression "honeymoon" for example dates back to the times of Babylon when the "mead" was donated to the spouses, a particular drink (formed by honey, yeast and water), which was considered fertility favored. Today science has identified more than 200 important elements in honey.

nitrogenous substances
Enzymes, aromas and trail elements

The great advantage of honey is to be able to make the current calorie organism available (it supplies 320 calories / 100 g.) Without requiring digestive processes and at the same time, at the same time, indigestible or harmful substances. Fructose wealth gives honey some properties that other sweet foods do not have. To this sugar you owe greater sweetener, the prolonged energy effect and the easy digestibility of honey: glucose is burned immediately, enter directly into a circle, while fructose is consumed more slowly and works as a power reserve as, before being Used by the body, it must be transformed into glucose. Honey is particularly indicated: in the nutrition of athletes and students; For elderly, unhappened or sick, due to its high nourishing value easily assimilable; For young people and children.

Perhaps not everyone knows that: the type of honey type is that of a dense, brilliant liquid, amber-colored. This has long conditioned the honey market, so much so that what did not match this stereotype was regularly refused. In reality crystallization is a natural process and can represent a verification of its authenticity.

Heating it at 45 ° C the honey returns liquid but, if you exceed this temperature the enzymes, vitamins and other active substances present in honey are damaged. In the industry, honey is pasteurized, so it is always liquid but often, due to high temperatures reached, provides considerable biological damage to the product.
