Honey is an all-natural and readily available option with many possible health benefits. Some evidence suggests that honey helps reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes and supports a healthy gut.12 Other research has found that honey might be a good alternative to antibiotics.3

Honey comes from nectar, which flowers produce to attract bees to them. Bees suck the nectar from flowers and store it in their stomachs. Later, bees will pass the nectar to other bees through their mouths. As the bees pass the nectar, the sugary substance turns into honey. Then, the bees store the final product in honeycomb cells.

Irradiated honey (also known as ‘radurised honey’) has been treated with ionizing radiation. This process is used to kill bacteria, spores, molds, microsporidia, and other contaminants that might be present in the honey. The goals of irradiating honey include reducing insect and microbial presence, and reducing the spread of microorganisms between bee colonies.

That said – the irradiating process does cause loss in the nutritional and beneficial properties of the honey. In one study that subjected honey to gamma irradiation, researchers noted a significant decrease in the honey’s Vitamin E level and moisture content. Irradiation also effected a change in colour.
