From Bee. Honey starts as flower nectar collected by bees, which gets broken down into simple sugars stored inside the honeycomb. The design of the honeycomb and constant fanning of the bees' wings causes evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey. Honey's color and flavor vary based on the nectar collected by the bees.

Bees make honey by collecting nectar from flowers using their long, tube-shaped tongues. They store the nectar in their honey stomach and transport it back to the hive. Once in the hive, bees pass the nectar to other bees through regurgitation and continue to process it by adding enzymes. The processed nectar is then stored in honeycomb cells and is left to evaporate and thicken, turning into honey over time.
