A delicious dynamic combination of two natural foods produced by the bee.
Bees collect pollen from the flowers of the plants and adding some nectar and beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) mold it in irregular spherical balls which constitute the protein food of bee pupae.
Pollen is rich in valuable ingredients, primarily in proteins and amino acids. It also contains lipids, lecithin (essential for fat metabolism), flavonoids (excellent antioxidants), carotenoids, trace elements and minerals.
It contains beneficial microorganisms (probiotcs), as well as vitamins C,E,B and P. Beeswax also contains enzymes (essential for the absorption of food through the digestive system).
It is a multipurpose food which enhances the human body. Vitamin Ρ protects the walls of the vessels. Pollen enhances the immune system and furthers the detoxification of the body. It strengthens the beneficial microbes of the intestine (probiotics).
The consumption of pollen by people can start from small amounts to reach the maximum daily consumption which is one table spoon (about 35 grams), half an hour before a meal.
Flower honey is collected at an altitude of 300m – 1300m in the region of South-Eastern Peloponnese. Many of these areas are included in the NATURA 2000 Network, which is a network of nature protection areas in the territory of the European Union. After harvest, the honey is carefully filtered and packaged strictly within the month.
Bees collect nectar from the flowers of countless aromatic and medicinal plants of the area and with the nectar they carry in the hive they produce aromatic flower honey. The nectar of the flowers collected by bees comes from the flowers of an extremely rich flora blooming under the beneficial Greek sun. Flower honey is light-coloured overall and crystallises easily. Crystallisation does not negate the beneficial properties of the flower honey (consumers use it as a criterion to “authenticate” the honey as flower honey).
It is composed of many substances: fructose, glucose, organic acids, amino acids, vitamins B and C, minerals and trace elements, enzymes, polyphenols, carotenoids, natural fragrances and so on.
Flower honey gives energy and stamina, regulates bowel function and enhances liver function.
