Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Honey and bee products, including propolis, bee pollen, bee bread, and royal jelly, as well as bee venom are a rich source of many substances with biological activity. These products have been used since ancient times due to their curative and pro-health properties, which cover a broad spectrum of antiradical, antioxidant, antibacterial, anticancer and adjuvant effects in the prophylaxis and treatment of many diseases. Bee products can also be attractive components of functional food, due to their significant activity. The purpose of this Special Issue is to identify and review the latest research results on bioactive components of honey and bee products that have a beneficial effect on the human health.

Contributions for this issue, both in form of review articles and original research, are welcome. They may cover all aspects of honey and bee products, including composition, chemistry, analysis, impact on the human health and application in the human diet.
