Honey is the oldest sweetener that the nature provides for centuries. Honey is a sweet substance, produced by bees from the nectar of flowering plants or honeydew located on the leaves and needles of trees (oak, fir, spruce). Nectar is a sweet juice secreted by nectaries of plants. Honeydew is sweet juices that produce the homopterous insects: aphids, coccoidea and psylla from the sap of trees. A bee collects the sweet juice of nectar and honeydew and enriches it with a secretion of the pharyngeal glands and concentrates it by evaporation of the water. Thus the honey is produced and the bee consequently stores it in the combs where the honey matures. In terms of origin we divide the nectar into honey and honeydew ones.
