Honey each day keeps the doctor away!

October 16, 2017

 

      Here is something I came across recently that I found rather enlightening.  I mean, we all know honey is amazing and so good for you, but what is actually in honey? 

 

      "In 2014, Ron Fessenden says in its book “The new honey revolution”  Honey contains more than 180 different substances that have been isolated from various honey varietals. These include 5 enzymes, 6 different vitamins, 8 distinctive lipids, 12 minerals, 17 trace elements, 18 different acids, 18 amino acids (proteins), 18 bioflavonoids (also known as antioxidants), and 26 aroma compounds. In this regard, honey is more like a fruit than a sugar.

 

For example, in 100 g of apples versus honey, here are the numbers as collected and reported in “Der Apfel – ein bewährtes Hausmittel neu entdeckt”, 1998, a book written by H. Buchter-Weisbrodt and U. Schöber:

 

Vitamin      Apple         Honey

        B1                .02 - .06mg        .003 - .03mg

        B2                .01 - .05mg          .02 - .06mg

        B3                .05 - .17mg          .11 - .36mg  

        B5                .05 - .13mg          .02 - .11mg

        B6                .04 - .06mg        .008 - .32mg

     

 

Just some interesting food for thought... 

 

P.S.  Apparently, our meadowfoam honey has gotten some rave reviews on the facebook page for Eugene Foodies.  Good job, honey bees!!
