  • By the way, don't be fooled by "organic" honey. There is no such thing, at least not if produced in the U.S. Think about it - bees fly for miles to get nectar, how can anyone promise that they have not been exposed to herbicides, pesticides etc? - 6/18/2016 7:42:15 AM
  • Raw, unfiltered and preferable local honey is the best choice. Most of the stuff on the shelves in the supermarket is junk - you may as well use corn syrup. The uses for bee products are pretty much endless. I am a new beekeeper - just over a year and this will be our first major harvest (expecting close to 100 pounds this year from 2 booming hives!). Looking forward to sharing this wonderful, sweet magic with friends and family. - 6/18/2016 7:36:26 AM

  • Breitsamer Honig Forest Honey, the really dark stuff, is the best. 7 bucks a jar at the Big Lots! - 11/5/2015 10:27:38 AM
  • Great article, and very informative. I'm a new beekeeper and I'm looking for all the information I can learn about the bees, honey, processing, etc. - 11/5/2015 7:01:07 AM
  • Whenever I have moved, I always try to find local honey. Eating it helps me keep my allergies at bay. A sweet way to keep from sneezing :) - 10/8/2015 11:02:04 PM

    Hello Liza. I believe there are different types of honey that are available. They have different color level of "goldiness "--- some are darker or lighter than the others. But I believe all of them are all very beneficial to human for consumption. Kindly recommend this to your readers, too. Thank you and more articles from you! http://bit.ly/eating_healthy - 7/30/2015 12:36:56 PM
  • As much as I meant my last comment , I have not seen buckwheat honey for sale locally for years . - 6/3/2015 9:06:16 PM

    Honey has been a food hobby for years. The variety of flavors from the variety of sources is endless. But before you get too excited, remember, for all its benefits, it is a simple sugar. - 5/28/2015 11:08:45 PM
  • Strict vegans choose not to use honey, because it comes from bees. It's an animal product. However, it does not involve the killing of bees to get the honey, so vegetarians will use it.

    Also, please give some info on responsible shopping by buying organic honey. Organic honey will be better because the bees are treated more humanely and because the food source used to feed the bees will not be treated with toxic insecticides. Whenever you buy food that is derived from an animal, you owe it to the animals and your conscience to buy organic. - 2/23/2015 6:34:39 PM
  • I have a friend who was one of the "test subjects" for the UC Davis study! They had to drink that honey in a weird fruit punch every day. She said the fruit punch was nasty...but she lost four pounds during the honey part of the study. (They had to drink the same fruit punch sweetened with regular sugar during the other part of the study.) - 7/7/2014 11:40:58 AM

    The biggest difference between honey and refined sugar or artificial sweeteners is simple ... God made one and chemists made the others. Who you gonna trust? EVERYTHING in moderation and the more natural the better. - 5/20/2013 9:01:20 PM
