The bees collect the nectar from the flowers and transport it to the hive, where they transform it into raw honey by adding digestive enzymes and evaporating water excess.
Pure and natural honey is a very nutritious food, which contains carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is used to sweeten naturally and is used in various culinary preparations and home remedies. Traditionally raw natural honey was considered and has been used in various home remedies to alleviate situations of coughs, colds, burns or lacerations… this being part of our popular culture. It is important to note that raw honey should not be given to children under one year of age or pregnant women.
The bees are characterized by being very efficient in managing their energy and, although they visit more than 7,000 flowers to produce 5g of honey, when they are located in an area where a specific bloom predominates, for example Orange Blossom, they are able to collect the nectar of these flowers to get a high quality raw orange blossom honey.
There are different varieties of honey, each one with unique characteristics and properties depending on the type of flowering in which the bees have collected the nectar, all of them 100% from Spain.
Some of the most recognized and valuable varieties of honey in our environment include Orange honey or Orange Blossom honey, Rosemary honey, Eucalyptus honey, Thyme honey, Heather or Holm oak honey… among many others varieties that make Spain a collecting region of the highest quality honeys.
