technically everything we eat including honey is synthesized, either by nature or by humans (but aren't humans part of nature?)
an atom doesn't care how it finds it's way into a molecule, nor does any target mind how that molecule found itself interacting with it.
bee hive biochemistry is best left to nature, but bee husbandry is a human pursuit into nature.
we introduce our hands, we remove resources, we manipulate the cavitiy size, we direct comb building.
the informed use of substances can aid the beekeeper in husbandry, and vice versa.
