* Honey bees, the most effective matchmaker of plants.

Spring is the beginning of a year; In the spring, the trees sprout, sprout, flower and bear the most fruit. There are two organs that determine fruiting, the pollen and the pistil. When the flower blooms, the pollen on the tip of the stamen opens up, but is still stuck together by the wax layer, the stigma also opens and has a lot of sticky resin. In order to produce much fruit, the colorful flowers and the fragrant little jar of honey at the bottom of the flower bag seduce bees like silk men and matchmakers. Honey bees have exceptional sight and smell to determine flower color at very far distances and flower fragrance at extremely low concentrations.

In the body of bees, there are honey sacs equal to 1/2 of their body weight. Bees have strong wings, can reach speeds of 400 times / 1 second and 60 km / h, so each time bees can get honey and pollinate hundreds of flowers. Honey bees are the most efficient pollinators in the family of pollinators, because their feet have a brush structure to collect pollen. When the bee enters the flower tube to suck nectar, the pollen will attach to the legs and body of the bee and put a lot of pollen on the pistil, so the first part of pollination is completed. After completing the task of the matchmaker, the bee has a gall bladder and 2 tiny pieces of chalk attached to the hind legs to bring home. Bees and plants have a very skillful harmony that other insects do not have in transferring pollen to the pistil.

* Honey, the most perfect nutritional product.

– Honey contains 80% sugar, mainly glucose, levulose…; double sugars (saccharose, mantose…) have very little, usually less than 5%, if more is honey from bees raised with cane sugar or mixed with cane sugar – low quality honey. Honey is a type of sugar water with high concentration, very high heat production (100 g of honey for 328 – 335 calories) so it is a very good product for energy tonic. – The hydrolysis of honey is from 15% to 25% and the density is about 1.4. When worker bees put honey into the chamber, they use the speed of their wings to blow off the water before closing the chambers. When the water content is less than 18%, it is called ripe honey or tempered honey; The lower the water content in honey, the higher the quality of the honey.

Honey contains 0.4% protid and amino acids; 5.1 mg% Ca; 7.2 mg% P; 0.46 mg% Fe; 2.9 mg% Mg; 0.004 mg% B1; 0.04mg% B2; 0.2 mg% vitamin PP; 0.02 mg% B6; 70 mcg% panthotenic acid…; Enzymes: lipase, galactase, diastase…; Organic acids: acetic acid, malic acid, tactric acid, formic acid … In addition to the above ingredients, there are few pollens, waxes, some poisons if sucking nectar in poisonous plants and specific essential oils for plants: honey mint, longan honey, coffee honey, melaleuca honey…. The amount of vitamins and minerals in honey in mg, if compared with some other functional foods, is not high, but vitamins and minerals have been activated so that when the bee eggs hatch into pupae, they use sugar, vitamins and minerals. minerals to develop into baby bees before they bite the nest and fly away; There is no storehouse of vitamins and minerals in supplements that can do that. Honey is the best conductor, has vitamin B6 for beauty and muscle strength; vitamin B12 combined with iron enhances blood production and is very effective against anemia; panthotenic acid has the effect of promoting sexual development, anti-aging and disease prevention for adults; B1, B2, B12 are the groups that promote metabolism, fight atherosclerosis, reduce fat storage, and fight obesity. ..
