Have you ever wondered if your honey has gone bad?
Honey is typically a sugar substitute, but it’s way more complex than sugar. This beautiful gold liquid is made by bees from nectar gathered from flowers. By turning nectar into honey bees are able to preserve their food over winter to feed themselves. It’s also packed with a ton of health boosting benefits, which means it’s great for you!
When people think of food going bad, they usually think of it growing mold or smelling bad. However, similarly to salt preserving food, sugar is impossible to rot. This is because it is hydrophilic, meaning it pulls moisture away from anything. Without water, mold and bacteria cannot live in honey. This is why honey never goes bad!
