Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by bees from the nectar of the flowers or secretions of living parts of plants or excretions of plant sucking insects. The bees collect, transform and combine it with the invertase enzyme that contains the saliva of the bees and store it in the combs where it matures.
The intervention of man in the process of exploitation of the combs of the hive is known as beekeeping. The physical, chemical and organoleptic characteristics of honey are determined by the type of nectar that bees collect.
