Honey is sweet, but the sweetest thing about this superfood isn't the taste. It contains powerful micronutrients that can give your body natural armor against many diseases including cancer. Honey, a natural and organic sugar alternative, was one of the most precious commodities during ancient times. This natural sweetener was once used as a currency. German property owners often paid their peasants in the form of beeswax and honey. The word honey is derived from the Old English term hunig, which means sweet. The origin of honey can be traced back to 2100 BC, where it has numerous mentions in the sacred texts of Egypt, India, Babylon, and Sumeria. According to Greek legend, Cupid used to strike unsuspecting lovers with arrows dipped in honey. In ancient times, honey was used for making not just beverages and food, but also for medicinal purposes. In modern times, we still love our honey, but that honey bear can get very sticky. And don’t even think of packing it in a suitcase. After one too many honey spills, tea drinker Jeremy Edelman knew there had to be a better way to carry and use honey. With some research and his entrepreneurial spirit Nektar Naturals was born. Nektar Honey Crystals is 100% all natural granulated honey in convenient packets. Through a unique heating and crystallization process, all natural honey and all natural sugar is combined to create these perfect granulated honey packets. Is this rocket science? Maybe. Enjoy all the benefits of superfood honey without the sticky bear. How did Jeremy, a former consumer marketing guy for the NBA, get into honey? You’ll have to listen.
