Organic Honeydew Honey 660 g
Honeydew honey, known also as forest honey, is a type of honey made—not from blossom nectar—but from honeydew excreted by plant sucking insects such as aphids. In Bulgaria, it is usually produced from oak trees.
This strong-tasting, mineral-rich, savory honey is the result of a relationship between aphids and bees. Honeydew honey is highly appreciated in certain parts of the world by connoisseurs and honey lovers alike for its intense flavor and healthful properties. It has dark to very dark color, sometimes with green fluorescence. The intensity of its taste is medium, with woody and warm notes. It has also medium sweetness with weak acidity, no bitterness with a medium aroma and sometimes astringent aftertaste.
In general, honeydew honey is higher in minerals and amino acids as well as higher molecular weight sugars (oligosaccharides) in particular, melezitose and raffinose. Honeydew honey has higher electrical conductivity and ash content and tends to remain liquid and resist crystallization because of high fructose and low glucose levels, as well as a low glucose to water ratio.
This honey contains a higher antioxidant, antibacterial activity level, mineral content and greater nutritional and therapeutic benefits than most regular flower honey. Honeydew honey is very easily absorbed by the body. Its active compounds favorably influence the processes in the nervous, digestive, respiratory and cardiovascular systems.
Directions for use:
The recommended dosage of honeydew honey is 15-20 g daily, 1-2 hours before meals.
