Honey is a sweet and sticky fluid produced by honey bees from the nectar of flowers and plants. Its color, flavor, thickness and aroma vary depending on the flower or plant from which the bees gather the nectar. Bees ingest the nectar they collect into their ‘honey stomach’, the nectar is regurgitated and dehydrated repeatedly until it reaches the desired quality at which stage it is placed by the honey bee into a honeycomb cell where it gradually converts into honey.

Oils are made up of three kinds of fatty acids: monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), and saturated fatty acids (SFA). The difference lies in the percentages of each fatty acid found in an oil.

The problem with SFAs is that they increase the bad cholesterol, LDL, in the blood. MUFAs, on the other hand, can have the opposite effect, increasing good cholesterol levels and lowering the bad ones.
