Abstract

Honey is the product produced by honey bees from nectar or honey dew, and serving as food for the bees. The use of honey as a sweetener has been known for centuries. Beeswax was also used for making writing tablets, candles and ointment. In the Middle Ages apiculture came to its greatest peak. Guilds of beekeepers were even set up. Besides supplying honey, bees are also responsible for the cross-pollination of fruit trees. This is of vital importance to the agricultural world.
