Our honey comes raw from bees kept in our olive orchard. These bees feed throughout the year from olive flowers, and wild flowers. The honey tends to crystallize at cold temperatures and is characterized by light floral flavours.
Raw honey is buzzing with beneficial vitamins and nutrients, such as B vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc. Honey also contains antioxidant polyphenols, which can help slow or reverse free-radical damage.
Honey has been used for centuries as both a food and a medicine for treating digestive ailments, skin wounds, sore throats, and coughs. It has an antiseptic and antibacterial action from a naturally occurring and slow-release process that produces hydrogen peroxide. When honey comes into contact with skin or wounds, the pH and sodium levels of the human body stimulates honey to activate the breakdown of glucose, releasing the hydrogen peroxide.
