Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced
by honey bees, and derived from the nectar of flowers. The Old Testament contains many references to honey as a symbol for all that is pleasant and desirable.
Honey is laid down by bees as a food source. In cold weather or when food sources are scarce, bees use their stored honey as their source of energy.
In addition, honey contains several vitamins,
such as vitamin B6, vitamin C, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and pantothenic acid.
Essential minerals including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and zinc as well as several different amino acids have been identified in honey.
