Ingredient Spotlight | Benefits of Honey

This week’s ingredient spotlight is Honey which is found in The Amazon PowrBlend. Honey is a sweet, sticky food made by bees foraging nectar from flowers. Honey is most commonly made by Honey Bees but can also be produced by: Bummblebees, Sting-less Bees, and Honey Wasps. Honey Bees convert nectar into honey by regurgitating and evaporation. Honey Bees store it as a primary food source in wax honeycombs in their beehive.

Honey is sweet from the monosaccharides fructose and glucose and has about the same relative sweetness as granulated sugar. Honey use and production has a varied history. Honey collection is an ancient activity, and is believed to started around 8,000 years ago.

Honey has shown in recent studies that it helps your health including:

  • Helps Reduce Risk of Heart Disease
  • Helps Boost the Amount of Antioxidants in the Blood
  • Reduces cough and throat irritation

Honey is more than just a sweetener, it also contains many antioxidants including polyphenols. That is why we decided to put honey in our Amazon PowrBlend.
