Does Honey Expires?
The honey is a complex mixture whose main elements are: simple sugars (glucose and fructose), water, minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, silicon, potassium, iodine, sodium, phosphorus)vitamins (A, group B, C, E, K), organic acids, phenols, flavonoids and enzymes. The proportions of these substances may vary, even of great importance, in relation to the composition of the nectar or honeydew from which the honey derives, that is to say, its botanical origin and the place of origin. The type of final product changes not only according to the nectar, but also according to the propolis, a substance that comes from the combination of bee proteins and tree resin and that is used for the protection of the hive. For such factors , the various types of honey can never be identical both in composition and in terms of organoleptic profile and beneficial properties

This product has a liquid consistency that tends not to crystallize and retains a neutral flavor with a note of vanilla and powdered sugar. It is used to reduce inflammation (especially those in the throat), to counteract digestive pathologies and to unlock the intestine, relying on its slight laxative effect.

This type of honey does not have a single place of production, but it can be produced both in the mountains and in hills e in the plain, where you can find flowers of various kinds. For this reason, depending on the area of collection, it can present some uniqueness at the level of flavor, scent and properties.

Honey what is it?
Honey is a sweet and viscous substance made by several bees, the best-known of which are Honey Bees. Honey is made and stored to nourish bee colonies.Bees produce honey by gathering and then refining the sugary secretion of plants (primarily floral nectar) or the secretions of other insects, like the honeydew of aphids. This refinement takes place both within individual bees, through regurgitation and enzymatic activity, and during storage in the hive, through water evaporation that concentrates the honey’s sugars until it is thick and viscous.
