HONEY IS UNREFINED
Honey (Oak) is a dark honey with a special taste. The oak tree (oak) had – not accidentally – legendary dimensions for the ancient Greeks, and offers a relatively rare honey for the Greek. It has a particular taste and low concentration of sugars. It is considered to be the most nutritious honey and is one of the most antioxidant properties, honey and contains in large quantities potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and sodium. The enzymes it contains enhance metabolism and vital organ functions. It also helps in gastric disorders, flu, overwork, hemorrhoids. It is stored in a cool and dry environment and is kept well in the refrigerator. Do not forget that crystallization is a feature of pure, untreated honey: oak honey due to its properties “crystallizes” more slowly than flower buds.
In Greece, apiculture does not involve the intense exploitation of bees and organised monocultures of mass produced, low cost & low quality honey.
Greek apiculture in protected Natura 2000 regions allows bees to feed exclusively on pure pollen, far away from chemicals, pesticides & industrial zones.
Due to the dry climate of Greece, honey has low water content and therefore it is slightly processed.
This has as a result a more aromatic, more dense and richer in flavours and ingredients honey.
