Scientific research and practice have proved that honey has strong antibacterial ability and is the only food in the world that will not spoil. In 1913, American archaeologists discovered a jar of honey in the Egyptian pyramid tomb. It has been identified that the honey has lasted for more than 3,300 years, but it has not deteriorated at all and is still edible. It can be seen that the real mature honey can be eaten completely after being placed for a long time. There is no strict shelf life, but as a food market, according to the “Chinese Food Law”, it is required to indicate the shelf life on food products. Therefore, the honey manufacturer generally sets the honey shelf life to 2. year.
However, it must be pointed out that if it is not mature honey or inferior products such as water, these honey will be fermented, sour, and inedible after a long period of time. Of course, if the fermentation is not serious, it can be eaten after being heated in a water bath at about 60 ° C for half an hour.
In short, no matter what honey, no matter how long it has been preserved, as long as it has not deteriorated, it is edible and will not be harmful to the body. Just a long time honey compared to fresh honey, the nutritional value is slightly worse.
