About honey

Honey is a food substance made from nectar or honeydew, produced by bees.
Nectar is a sweet juice, a secretion from most of the flowering plants, which are pollinated by insects.
Honeydew is a naturally sweet juice, which is secreted by forest aphids and spruce bud scales. Honeydew is an animal secretion; it is not a product of insects’ metabolism, but a rest of tree liquids. In the hive, bees cultivate and thicken the nectar and honeydew. They add the secretions from their glands, store them into the honeycomb and cover it with wax caps. That is how honey is made.
