It is a rich source of vitamins (C, B, A, D, E), minerals, elements (such as iron, phosphorus, sulfur, manganese, magnesium, sodium, calcium, iodine, chlorine, and zinc), carbohydrates, enzymes, organic acids and minerals.

Honey is the only food on the planet that will never spoil! It will only crystallize. Honey in fact will forever be honey. However, when you leave it in a cool dark place for a long time it will solidify. When this occurs, simply loosen the lid of the jar and put the container with honey in hot water, but not boiling. Turn off the heat and let it liquefy. Then it's as good as it was when it was first produced. You should never boil honey or put it in a microwave oven, because it will destroy the enzymes.
