Honey

Honey is made up of approximately 20% water, 75% sugar and a cocktail of minerals, vitamins and trace elements which are very beneficial for the body.

Contrary to popular belief, the sugar in honey is very low in calories. It has nothing to do with the white sugar that we regularly consume and which is rich in sucrose. The sugar in honey contains very little sucrose, on the other hand it is more highly dosed in glucose and fructose, which gives it many energy properties.

Properties:

Honey
Honey is a sweet substance made by bees using the nectar of flowers. Composed of more than 80% carbohydrates, it is an energy-rich and relatively pure food. In fact, there are mainly two sugars: fructose and glucose, two simple sugars that do not require any digestion before their absorption and which are easily and directly assimilated by the body.

Honey is not just a treat. Here are eight surprising health benefits of honey.

1. It's a natural sweetener

2. Strengthens your immune system

3. Soothes sore throat

4. Cures hangovers

5. Fights insomnia

6. Improves your athletic performance

7. Heal cuts and burns

8. Moisturizes skin and hair

Prebiotics are carbohydrates not assimilated by our body that play a role in the balance of the intestinal microflora. Honey would possibly have a prebiotic effect on the human body by improving the growth, activity and viability of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli of the intestinal microflora, bacteria important for good health.
Honey is a food source of antioxidants. The majority of these antioxidants are flavonoids. These interact in the neutralization of free radicals in the body, thus preventing the onset of cardiovascular diseases, certain cancers and certain neurodegenerative diseases. The amount and type of flavonoids found in honey vary depending on the floral source. As a general rule, darker honeys, such as those made from sunflower and buckwheat, contain higher amounts of flavonoids than paler honeys4, as well as greater antioxidant capacity. Moreover, for the same quantity, honey has an antioxidant power equivalent to that of the majority of fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, it is rare that we consume the same quantity of vegetables/fruits and honey. However, the assimilation of these flavonoids by the human body having been very little studied, further research is necessary.
Quantities available: 1/4 L, 1/2 L, 1L.
