Honey is a kind of natural nutritious agent, which contains vitamin C, B, iron, potassium, lead, calcium and other minerals. The main nutritious component of honey is the sugar that can burn human energy. Honey has the functions of sterilization, detoxification and intestines moistening, which helps to discharge the waste in the human body, burn the excess fat, improve the metabolism of the whole body, and then achieve the function of weight reduction. Honey also has the effect of sterilization, detoxification and moistening intestines. It contains a variety of amino acids, which can be directly absorbed by the intestinal wall. Therefore, it is often regarded as a precious health drink with special sweetness, which is also popular.
Honey should be kept in a cold and dark place. It is best to put it in the refrigerator at low temperature and not in direct sunlight. The shelf life is usually 18 months. Since honey is a weakly acidic liquid, it can react chemically with metals. During storage, it will react with metals such as lead, zinc, and iron. Therefore, non-metallic containers such as ceramics, glass bottles and non-toxic plastic barrels should be used to store honey. Honey should also prevent odor, moisture absorption, fermentation and pollution during storage. In order to avoid odor and pollution, it should not be stored in the same way as corrosive items (such as fertilizers, pesticides, lime, alkali, nitrate, etc.) or unhygienic items (such as waste products and livestock products) with odorous items (such as gasoline, alcohol, garlic, etc.) ). The state stipulates that the shelf life of bottled honey is 18 months, but capped honey with high concentration can also be preserved for many years. But it is better to eat fresh honey, because fresh honey generally has a good color, aroma and taste!
