Honeybees transform nectar into honey by a process of regurgitation and store it as a primary food source in wax honeycombs inside the beehive.

Honey gets its sweetness from the monosaccharide fructose and glucose and has approximately the same relative sweetness as that of granulated sugar.

Flavors of honey vary based on the nectar source. It is also used in various medicinal traditions to treat ailments.

Honey is produced by bees as a food source, By contriving for bee swarms to nest in artificial hives, people have been able to semi domesticate the insects, and harvest excess honey.

In the hive, there are three types of bee in a hive: a single female queen bee, a seasonally variable number of male drone bees to fertilize new queens, and some 20,000 to 40,000 female worker bees.

The worker bees collect the nectar that will turn to honey in the hive.

Leaving the hive, they collect sugar-rich flower nectar and return.

Ripe honey, as removed from the hive by a beekeeper, has a long shelf life, and will not ferment if properly sealed.

Honey is collected from domesticated beehives.

Collecting honey is typically achieved by using smoke to pacify the bees; this makes them far less aggressive.

The honeycomb is removed from the hive and the honey is extracted from that.

The honey is then filtered.
