Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance produced by bees. Bees obtain the honey from plant and insect secretions through a process called regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation. Bees can store up to two pounds of honey in their colony. Honey is a natural source of antioxidants, nutrients, and energy. It is a valuable food source for humans and pets alike. Its use in baking, cooking, and other foods is widely recognized.
