HONEY IS UNREFINED
OAK TREE HONEY “KOSMAS ALEXIS” 480 GR FROM IOANNINA
A honey misunderstood for beekeepers for years because of its dark / black color, it was considered anti-commercial. Recent research, however, of the Agricultural University of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, highlighted it as the Greek honey with the highest antioxidant activity. Thus, in combination with its particular flavor, oak honey has found its place in the preferences of beekeepers and consumers!
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.
