Honey Produced from plant nectar Primarily from flowers Also extra-floral nectaries. Precursor of nectar is- Phloem sap Most often a dilute solution of sucrose Essentially bees do two things: Dehydrate Enzymatic inversion of sucrose to glucose &amp; fructose </li><li> 6. Bee taking nectar from flower. , </li><li> 7. Importance of HONEY The first sweetener (long before sugar cane) It consist number of substances like fatty acid ,enzymes ,vitamins (A,B &amp; C Complex ), minerals like Fe , Cu ,Mg ,Na ,K ,Ca ,Si ,etc. ) Alcoholic beverage (mead) Pharmacy - medicinal vehicle &amp; taste corrective, wound dressing , Cosmetics , used in baked goods , beauty lotions and ice cream.

HONEY EXTRACTION Honey extraction is the central process in beekeeping of removing honey from honeycomb so that it is isolated in a pure liquid form. The frames are typically harvested late summer, when they will be most filled with honey. On a completely filled frame, the cells will be capped by the bees for storage that is, each cell containing honey will be sealed with a cap made of wax. Uncapping with an electric hot knife on an uncapping tub. The uncapped frames are then placed in a honey extractor, which spins them so that most of the honey is removed by centrifugal force. </li><li> 11. PROCEDURE </li><li> 12. BEE WAX </li><li> 13. BEE WAX Yellowish white waxy solid material(mixture of cerotic acid and myricyle palmitate). Secreted from wax glands present in the abdominal sternum. Wax gland present from 4-7 abdominal segment. Wax gland present in worker bees of 10-18 days. Precursor is honey and nector. Produced as small translucent flakes. </li><li> 14. Wax scales from wax glands </li><li> 15. BEESWAX COMPOSITION Over 300 identified individual components hydrocarbons (14%) monoesters (35%) diesters (14%) hydroxy polyesters (8%) free acids (12%) </li><li> 16. Uses of bee wax Widely used in cosmetics, beauty lotions , creams , floor wax , candles, polishes ,dental wax. One of the major uses of bee wax is in the preparation of comb foundation sheet. </li><li> 17. PROCEDURE Put water and boil. Wash crushed bee combs and place in the sack (and make a package ). Put the package into the pot and use the stick to push it down to the bottom. When it reaches a temperature of about 59C, the wax begins to melt and a waxy scum begins to form on top of the water. More wax will float to the top of the Water. Use the ladle to skim off the melted wax and pour it into a mould. </li><li> 18. Products of bee wax. </li><li> 19. ROYAL JELLY </li><li> 20. Royal Jelly Royal jelly is used in the nutrition of larvae, as well as adult queens. It is secreted from the glands in the hypopharynx of worker bees, and fed to all larvae in the colony, regardless of sex or caste It is creamy, opalescent and white liquid produced by the workers of 4-10 days. It extends the life of bee from 6 weeks to 5 years. Its composition is so complex that scientist are not able to completely break down its components completely. Marketed in capsules, soft gel and soothing cream. </li><li> 21. Composition 67% water 12.5% crude protein 11% simple sugars (monosaccharide) (5%) of fatty acids. It also contains many trace minerals. antibiotic components, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5),vitamins B6 (pyridoxine) and trace amounts of vitamin C, but none of the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K. </li><li> 22. ROYAL JELLY COLLECTION </li><li> 23. USES OF ROYAL JELLY Royal jelly is collected and sold as a dietary supplement for humans, claiming various health benefits because of components such as B-complex vitamins.

BEE VENOM THERAPY Bee venom therapy is used by some as a treatment for rheumatism and joint diseases due to its anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory properties It is also used to desensitize people allergic to insect sting.

BEE POLLEN Bee pollen (or bee bread or a pollen ball) is a mass of pollen that has been packed by worker honeybees into granules with added honey or nectar. Bee pollen is found in brood cells, chambers of wood and mud created by female ground-nesting bees. When the pollen ball is complete, a single female lays an egg on top of the pollen ball, and seals the brood cell. Pollen balls are harvested as food for humans. the average composition is said to be 55% carbohydrates, 35% proteins, 3% minerals and vitamins, 2% fatty acids, and 5% diverse other components.[ </li><li> 37.
