Is Honey Bee Vomit?

Is is really true that honey is bee vomit? Some people asked why this has never been mentioned in the website and that they would never eat the vomit of bees.

Honey is not bee vomit. It is perceived as vomit as it comes out from the bee's mouth. But it is not. The bee sucks and collects the nectar from flowers using its long proboscis and store it in its special stomach or "honey stomach" separate from its true stomach for digestion. It then secretes enzymes into the nectar, converting it into honey that has healing properties. Look at the image below, the bee has two stomachs. Honey is made and stored in a special, exclusive, and relatively big reservoir!
