Honey is a great superfood because in addition to being a carbohydrate that gives us a lot of energy, it contains minerals such as phosphorus, potassium and magnesium, various B vitamins, amino acids and proteins. It is important to know that honey is a high-quality source of glucose due to its special enzymes, which make it digest better and less fattening than other sugars. Recipes: - Exfoliating cream - Facial cream - Dressing with honey

Greetings from the inside of my super protective suit Because if you can see I'm surrounded by lots and lots of bees we are In hives And what are we going to talk about today Not easy From honey honey is the liquid gold of the history and accompanies the human being Since prehistoric times We have traces in cave paintings of the use and existence of honey And cultures such as the Egyptians and the Greeks

have used it throughout history Even as a form of payment It's an incredible food as well as a form of sweetening

With a sweetening power far superior to sugar

But with much less calories And other properties of which we will talk about little by little Where does honey come from honey is produced by bees And the incredible variety of honey that exists depends a lot on the type of nectar and the type of flower from which it is collected

So we have an incredible variety in the market and we have heather honey, honey of a thousand flowers

Eucalyptus honey sunflower honey we can find honey of almost any flower

what else about honey honey has healing properties not only for the inside but also for the outside It has many cosmetic properties It's anti-inflammatory, it has a lot of enzymes, it has proteins, vitamins It is truly a magical food that we can not give up when it comes to having a balanced diet

Healthy and that gives us a lot of energy

Did you know that in Egyptian excavations with more than 2000 years old were found samples of honey perfectly preserved in slightly covered vessels Which were still edible And all you had to do was heat it up Did you know that the expression honeymoon has its origin in an ancient Roman custom Every night The bride's mother left a pot of honey to replenish her energy

at the disposal of the newlyweds This practice lasted for the entire vacation period after the wedding

Did you know that in Greek mythology it is the food of the gods of Olympus The ancient Greeks considered that a diet rich in honey was important

in order to achieve a deep spirituality It was a symbol of knowledge and wisdom Did you know that when Alexander the Great died in Babylon he was transferred to Macedonia in a large vessel with honey and his corpse Preserved intact Simply amazing I am a fourth generation beekeeper, my great-grandfather already had beehives

We like bees more than honey

We are Beekeepers and we use honey is the main product of the beehive besides pollen and royal jelly

But honey let's say it's the most complete food in nature, it's sugars

Very assimilable by the body not contribute any harmful thing, even taking it in excess, and there is some time of the year in which it is harvested

specifically the honey or we usually go after the blooms, the type of flower

clearly determines the taste of the honey, once the honey is extracted from the hive

It goes through some kind of process it's almost raw so to speak, the honey speaks a lot about the solid honey

the honey that comes out of the liquid hive It comes out liquid liquid and fluid then that is taken out and packaged What happens that honey can become hard at a given moment The honey becomes hard after the following year At a temperature between 15 degrees and 5 degrees is when the honeys crystallize

It is one of the things that everybody says That it's a very good one, that it's a honey that has crystallized, but we've been able to visualize it in the drums and we haven't had to pack it

So there is a system that if the honey goes over 45 degrees temperature it loses all its properties

That's an interesting fact I didn't know, so it's convenient that it doesn't reach, we reach 40°, we have it for 3 days at 40°

It is liquefied again to filter it, so that it does not have impurities It has to be beautiful and active too, we work in organic farming

A neighbor with a jar of honey and tells me look so you can see that this is really ecological With bee legs and larvae it may be very ecological, but the beekeeper is a filthy man

I mean honey is not to be cooked, honey can be cooked and you can even cook the honey that you're going to drink at the moment

In the microwave because it loses its properties afterwards after heating, even many times when people tell us about those honeys that have been cooked in the microwave

If you put it in a bain-marie, if you crystallize it in the microwave, it is better to put it in the microwave just the right dose that you are going to take

I've even heated it too much, you can take it on the spot and it keeps everything there

The honey Let's see It is balsamic, any honey is good to cure a cold for the respiratory tract

How to preserve the properties of the plant from which it comes, for example the oak is very good for the stomach Infusions of oak leaf good for the stomach oak honey very good, the chestnut is very good for the circulation For the same reason Rosemary is very good for the people who are studying for the head and liver too Heather is very good for the liver and for anemias, the darker the honeys are the more mineral salts they have

So at the level of the as the heather is almost black You have a lot of mineral salts is very good for anemias well thank you very much Antonio it has been great super enlightening in relation to A food so Rich It is a high quality source of glucose Contains minerals such as phosphorus, potassium and magnesium

It has B vitamins, amino acids and proteins
