Flower and Forest Honey

Flower and Forest Honey

Two types of honey in one drop. Flower honey and Forest honey. These two types of honey differ significantly in the ingredients, the aroma and the colour, but complementing one another they offer a bouquet of aromas, as well as a cluster of substances essential to our system. The bees gather honeydew mainly from firs, pines and oaks as well as nectar from a great variety of flowering aromatic and medicinal plants and wildflowers from the mountains.
The physico-chemical and curative properties of flower honey, as well as its aroma and colour, differ depending on the nectar of the plant carried by bees in the hive.
Flower honey is light-coloured overall and crystallises easily. Combining it with forest honey, crystallisation can be delayed or even avoided.
Flower honey offers energy and stamina, it regulates bowel function and enhances liver function. It contains very small amounts of protein and hardly any salt.
Forest honey is viscous, it has a dark colour, a light, neutral aroma and a sweet flavour. Its antibacterial action is due to the hydrogen peroxide created after the breakdown of glucose contained in the honey. It contains, in descending order, potassium, sulphur, chlorine, calcium and phosphorus. It also contains organic acids which are the source not only of its acid reaction but of its antibacterial properties as well. Its nutritional value is owed to the great amount of various substances it consists of, primarily to its trace elements. Due to its low content in glucose, crystallisation is slow.
