 Honey is a sweet food made by bees using nectar collected from flowers - the type of honey consumed by people is made by honey bees (Apis genus).

Used as a sweetener in foods and drinks - has a distinctive flavor. 1 teaspoon of honey contains 22 calories.

Honey can contain dormant bacterial endospores of Clostridium botulinum, which can be harmful to infants < 1 year old - since the spores can transform into toxin-producing bacteria in an infant's immature GI tract

Honey should be used in moderation to prevent its sugar content elevating INSULIN levels -possibly causing:

•   Overweight

•   High blood pressure

•   High blood cholesterol

•   Diabetes
