What kinds of things do you think about when trying to decide whether a food is healthy or not?
Do you look at its nutritional value and stop there?
Or do you look at the way the food was produced in order to determine whether or not it will benefit your body?
The truth is, many people do seem to think that the healthiness (or lack thereof) of a food product is solely related to the components and nutritional values of that product.
That can lead a lot of people to be turned off of a product such as natural honey, which is in essence nothing more than fructose sugar in a liquid form. Or is it?

Honey may actually be immensely more complex than people might think. Honey has been in use as a food source for the duration of human history, and at many points throughout history was used as the primary sweetening agent for food products.
However, unlike the refined sugars that people use in the present, honey has other key components that make it far preferable for use in sweetening foods, beverages, and even for consumption all on its own.
