"Honey is a natural sweet substance produced by Apis mellifera bees from the nectar of plants or from secretions of living parts of plants or excretions of plant-sucking insects on plants. Bees collect it, transform it by combining with specific substances of their own, deposit it, dehydrate it, store it and leave it in honeycombs to ripen and mature."

This is the definition from Codex Alimentarius and the European Union. It is to be applauded because it marginalises the practice of feeding syrup to bees when supers are on the hive and does not exclude pollen
Wax is produced by bees from the wax glands on the ventral aspect of their abdomens. It may be put to many uses including candle making, cosmetics, polish, wax wraps and sewing purposes.
Royal Jelly:
Propolis is a very complex substance used by bees to control the environment of the nest. It contains phenols found in plant exudates and has been used historically for medicinal purposes. Research continues into modern day applications in medicine.
Venom may be collected without causing any harm to the bees. To date it is of limited use but immunologists use it to attempt to reduce a person's allergic response to bee stings. Great care must be taken with the resultant dried venom.
Royal Jelly is the substance found at the bottom of a brood cell. It can be used in beekeeping to supercharge a potential queen cell prior to transferring the larva. Again, it's use for human consumption is at the cost of brood and this action of this may have dire consequences for the bees.
Pollen may be collected from bees as they enter the bee hive. It's value is questionable as humans are believed to be unable to break down the pollens external walls. It is also dubious to collect pollen from bees which require it in great quantities for brood rearing.
