Varities of Honey

In the United States alone, there are more than 300 varieties of honey. Clover, buckwheat, tupelo and basswood are among the most popular flavors, but there are countless more to choose from.

Why is there such a wide variety of flavors? The answer isn’t as simple as you think. The flavor of honey comes from where the bees gather nectar. Different flowers produce different nectar, resulting in honey with different tastes, aromas and experiences.

All honey starts off as nectar, which is gathered by honeybees and stored in a special stomach. After filling their stomach, bees return to the hive and exchange the nectar with hundreds of other bees, breaking down the nectar into fructose and glucose. From there, the bees deposit it into a comb, fan it until there is only about 17% moisture left, and seal it away with a wax cap for storage.
