Virtues


Honey is a hive product used primarily to sweeten food.
Its benefits are multiple, because in addition to being a natural sweetener, honey helps strengthen the immune system and relieves sore throat.
Honey is also ideal to restore energy to athletes before their workout because it is easy to digest and delivers power slowly (unlike sugar).
In addition, honey has antibacterial properties and some hospitals now use it to treat burns and wounds.

100 grams of honey represent an energy value of 327 Kcalories.
