Honey is produced exclusively by bees. The essential raw material for honey is flower nectar, which tenacious bees work hard to collect each day after countless hours of flight in search of the best flowers, to find the best nectar. The bees extract this sugary liquid from the inside of the flowers using a long proboscis to suck the nectar into their stomachs, where they will store it and the transformation process will begin.
Specialized enzymes quickly go to work on the nectar, definitively modifying its chemical composition and acidity (pH), transforming it little by little into a liquid ready for long-term storage.
With their stomachs full of nectar, the bees fly back to the hive and begin the process of regurgitating the collected and partially digested nectar, passing it mouth-to-mouth to other bees. The process will be repeated with other bees who will receive the chemically-modified liquid until it reaches its optimum state; the last bee will deposit the fluid into a wax honeycomb for storage.
The water content is still too high for optimal storage at this point. To extract the excess water, the bees flap their wings furiously over the product, accelerating the process of evaporation, until the honey finally reaches the thickened consistency that we are familiar with.
