Honey is nature's oldest sweetener and humans have a long history with it. From medicinal treatments in ancient Mesopotamia to a currency in 11th century Germany it's had many different uses over the years. Nowadays honey is primarily used as an ingredient or eaten on its own and when compared to processed sugars it offers a number of benefits including trace amounts of:
- amino acids
- B vitamins
- vitamin C
Honey is also much easier for our bodies to digest because of the enzymes that are added to the nectar by bees. Many added sugars and high fructose corn syrups can be inflammatory and cause digestive issues that upon extensive consumption may lead to conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
