Honey Never Spoils
Honey is one of nature’s most remarkable preservatives. Archaeologists have found pots of honey in ancient Egyptian tombs that are over 3,000 years old and still perfectly edible. Honey’s unique properties make it resistant to spoilage. It has low water content, high acidity, and produces hydrogen peroxide when exposed to moisture, all of which deter the growth of microorganisms. Additionally, honey’s thick, viscous texture helps create a barrier that seals out air and prevents spoilage. This exceptional preservation quality makes honey a fascinating substance that has been cherished for millennia.
