Honey is not new as its use dates centuries and civilizations back.
Honey is considered as a balanced diet. I know a tribe that lives on only honey and milk. It further illustrates the rich constituents of honey.
Of recent there has been an increase in awareness for NATURAL SWEETENERS now trending our cyberspace.
This has caused a lifestyle shift for some while some others are contemplating.
If you are still not sure about swapping honey for refined sugar, I will share some of its other qualities:
1. Honey never spoils. No need to refrigerate it. It can be stored unopened, indefinitely, at room temperature in a dry cupboard.
2. Because of the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than refined table sugar. Thus, the need to use less quantity to sweeten.
3.Ants are not attracted to pure honey.
4.It has antimicrobial and wound healing properties. It can applied on wounds to initiate healing.
5. Its is used in many Do-It-Yourself recipes.
In our environment the major types of honey are:
1. Pure raw unfiltered honey
2. Pure raw filtered
3. Pasteurised honey (usually foreign and found in supermarkets)
4. Adulterated honey
*Lots of foreign honey is heavily processed via heating and filtering which can strip the honey of nutrients and pollen that makes honey special.
*Avoid honey in babies less than 1year.
“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
Have a fabulous Friday.
