History [change change source]
Honey is the first human sweet substance, being especially valued by priests in various rituals. There are sufficient testimonies that in ancient civilizations honey was used, among other things, in the preparation of an alcoholic beverage to which pollen and honeycombs were added, but the oldest documents on honey are two fragments written in the Sumerian language. Since the Egyptians have remained testimonies about how to harvest and use honey. Babylonians and the various ancient civilizations in India and China used honey both for medicine and rituals and ceremonies. In the Old Testament we have written 'honey' over 60 times. In ancient Greece, much has been written about honey production. Hippocrates recommend honey for curing diseases (gastrointestinal, kidney, respiratory) and wound healing. Dioscoride, the author of a five-volume book, De Materia Medica, treats fistulas wounds using honey in local applications. Plumage indicates honey in combination with fish lard to treat infected wounds. Muslims used honey as a good cure for any disease. The use of honey in food (as food, drink, preservative), in medicine, in religious rituals has been steadily increasing until the discovery of sugar from cane and beet. In 1871, invertase was discovered (an enzyme that accelerates the conversion of sugar into glucose and fructose).
