Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers. Honey is an integral part of conventional pooja thali. Honey symbolizes the sweetness of everlasting love, purity and prosperity. During the pooja ritual, honey along with milk, tulsi and yogurt is poured on the idols. Honey is used to arrange Madhu-parka - a beverage product of honey, sugar, and milk is offered to the deity.
The Sanskrit word for honey is "madhu." In Hindu mythology, the gods Vishnu, Krishna and Indra were known as Madhava (the nectar-born ones) and their symbol is the bee. Kama, the Indian god of love, carries a bow strung with bees indicating that love's sweetness also can cause pain.
Honey is, in actual fact, nearly pure sugar. About 40 percent by volume is fructose, a simple sugar, which turns into glucose without any digestive change in any way and makes honey the quickest supply of energy. An extra 34 percent is dextrose, 2 percent is glucose and 18 percent is water.
