What makes honeycomb special?
Honeycomb is essentially ‘unpacked’ honey. Honey still trapped in the honeycomb retains all of its nutrient content and is simply a more fun way to add sweetness to your life.
Typically, beekeepers first remove the honeycombs from the hive and then the honey from the honeycomb by using a honey extractor, later decanting it into jars. But that’s not how it always was. In the olden days, people usually kept honey in the honeycomb and simply broke off a piece to chew on as if it were a piece of gum. Because beeswax has various healthy-boosting properties, chewing on such a treat came with additional health benefits. The act of chewing stimulates the secretion of saliva and digestive juices, improving digestive function and increasing the rate of peristalsis. So honeycomb honey is not just delicious, it is beneficial.
With regard to nutritional content, the honey trapped in a honeycomb does not differ all that much from decanted honey.
