  • Q:

    How is honey made?

    A:

    Honey is made from the nectar of flowers collected by bees. This nectar is broken down into simple sugars by enzymes in the bees' stomachs, then deposited and stored in the cells of the honeycomb, which are then sealed with wax. The design of the honeycomb combined with the persistent fanning of the bees' wings makes evaporation occur, which causes the nectar to thicken, creating the sweet liquid honey.
