Honey does not spoil , Ever!
This is perhaps one of the greatest properties of honey. You could place it anywhere for thousands of years and it will not spoil. In fact, edible honey was found in ancient Egyptian Pharaoh King Tut’s tomb!
Honey contains large amounts of fructose and glucose. Naturally this makes it an ideal sweetener – much sweeter – almost 20 to 60 per cent more – than sugar itself.
Let’s take a look at the wonderful source of honey – the fantastic creature called the Honey Bee Honey bees have been found 20 million years ago.
Surely they must know what they’re doing. And they’re not looking at retirement anytime soon either, because honey bees are not only one of the oldest species, they are also one of the most hardworking.
A honey bee could visit around 2000 flowers in a day, flying around 25 kilometers per hour!
That’s not all, It would take about 2 million flowers for these little creatures to visit to make just half a kilogram of honey.
Not only that, just one single honey bee colony can produce between 30 to 40 kilograms of honey in a year. Can anyone beat that?
So, let’s remember how much hard work goes into a single spoonful of honey that we so yummily use as part of our food.
