#Repost @kerstin161v • • • Someone just threw a little poppyseed lemon cake into my blueberry sojade yoghurt with flaxseeds and topped it with vegan honey from @vegablum. What has cruelty-free free wonig and honey in common? It doesn't go off! I have my jar since April 2017 and got it at a vegan spring festival in my hometown. It's made of sugar from beets, juices, plant extracts and a lot of love and compassion. Some of you might still think honey from poor little bees is so much healthier for you than alternatives. I wouldn't know why! Please ask yourself a few questions? Are the sugar molecules (fructose and glucose mostly) in honey any different from wonig? No, and your body most likely doesn't have separate receptors for those sugars derived from honey. But honey has antimicrobial properties, right? Why? Could it be just because of the high sugar content? That's why regular jam, molasses, syrups etc hardly go off. But the enzymes?! Since the protein content in honey is really low, the enzyme content isn't that high as well. Briefly, enzymes are proteins that actively do something. Your stomach acid, proteases (enzymes that disassemble other proteins) hopefully destroy most of the enzymes from food and you can produce all the enzymes and proteins you need yourself (except the beings with a genetic defect. I'm sorry for you!). Fascinating, right? Life is so valuable, so take care of it. Not just yours, but the one of every being around you as well, including the ones of the tiny and vulnerable. But beekeepers help bees to survive? Anthropocentric bullshit! No other being needs us to survive. They can take care of themselves and the do. There are different species of bees that are wild. Different from our honey bees they don't have a strong preference for a certain type of flowers, so they help to keep diversity up. Honey bees have learnt it's more beneficial for them to approach a particular kind of petals, known as flower constancy.
