Honey is a popular sweetener throughout the world. According to an Associated Marketing survey conducted for the National Honey Board in 1997, almost 77 % of U.S. households use honey along with other sweeteners and syrups and 45 % of them consider honey a good value because it is “natural/good for you/better for you than sugar.”

     Overall, honey has a positive profile with nearly 62 % of users “especially liking” it for its taste and flavor, 24 % because it is natural and 16 % because it is good for you. From ancient times, honey was not only used as a natural sweetener but also as a healing agent. Many health-promoting and curative properties attributed to it are the basis for some traditional folk medicine treatments throughout the world today.
