Honey is one of the most popular natural sweeteners of all, but a forbidden sweetener for vegans. Vegans consider the extraction of honey to be an unfair process that does not respect nature, as we take unfair advantage of the work of bees and the food they produce for themselves. However, with a new patent from a US company, this is about to end. They have patented a honey that is obtained by a proprietary technology that they claim is very natural.

The vegan diet or lifestyle does not accept the consumption of bee honey. The reason is very simple, they consider that beekeeping exploits bees and takes away their food in an exploitative and unfair way. Vegans want to be totally respectful of the environment, and to take advantage of the bees’ work in the production of honey without giving them much more in return is something that vegans cannot allow.

To meet this need of a small part of society, the company Melibionic has found a solution. This team of entrepreneurs has created a honey that is not elaborated by bees, but follows a process patented by them and which I imagine will be quite natural for the elaboration of this product.
