Honey has had a long history. It has been used as a medicinal food since antiquity. It is mentioned in the Bible, the
Talmud and the Koran. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used it in the treatment of his patients.
It is also anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic.
Honey is chiefly composed of various sugars. Other substances hitherto identified include: phosphate of calcium and iron and minute amounts of sodium chloride, formic acid, vitamins A, B and C and small grains of pollen in minute quantities but of high nutritional value. When heated or sterilized, the ferments lose their character. Light destroys the vitamin A, while heat destroys all three vitamins.
