BIO WILD APPLE HONEY GR. 300 Honeydew honey, or forest honey, is the only honey that is not collected from the flowers. It is the secretion of insects (aphids, whiteflies, mefcalfe) that sting the leaves of trees (citrus, chestnut, fig, mulberry, fir and pine) to collect the sap. These secretions are collected by the bees and transformed into honey in the period of August, when there are no flowers to collect pollen from. It has a very dark color, almost black, and a dense consistency that does not crystallize, keeping the honey liquid in all its phases. The taste is not very sweet, with a particular aftertaste, which combines sweet and bitter notes. Being obtained directly from a raw material collected by bees on the leaves of trees, the biological nature of the crops in which the collection takes place is very important, to preserve the honey from any form of pollution.
SULLA BIO HONEY GR. 300 Sulla is a typically Mediterranean herbaceous plant, which is cultivated as forage or with the aim of enriching the soil with organic substances in wheat fields. Flowering can last up to 30 days, but the ideal conditions for collecting the nectar last about 10 days, between May and June, in the hills and valleys of central Sicily, from the Madonie to the Belice valleys. The honeycombs are harvested at almost the end of flowering, the resulting honey is very delicate, very fine and very white once crystallized. The flavor and aroma are equally delicate, characterized by a pleasant vegetal note.
HONEY IN BIO BEAN GR.180 LEONARDI The honeycomb is a vertical construction made by bees and composed of a set of hexagonal cells made of wax. Bees use them to store food supplies during particularly productive periods, and are made up of honey, pollen and royal jelly.But then is the honeycomb edible? The answer is yes, as it is made up of raw honey and natural beeswax.Its excellent nutritional characteristics give us a precious food for our well-being: with its contribution of sugars, vitamins, small amounts of proteins, antioxidants, minerals, polyphenols and enzymes. In particular, the presence of the enzyme known as glucose oxidase gives the honeycomb antifungal and antibacterial properties, which protect our intestine from fungi and bacteria that can cause the onset of diseases including Candida albicans. Furthermore, beeswax promotes the natural regulation of intestinal processes.How to use: To fully enjoy the honey in the comb it is advisable to remove a piece of it and chew it for a few minutes: the wax does not alter its natural flavor .It lends itself to numerous uses. It can also be eaten by spreading it on a slice of toast or to accompany dried fruit. Ideal with cereals, but also to dress particular salads or ice cream. Its pairing with cold cuts and cheeses is delicious. Also excellent for sweetening low-fat yogurt or in the preparation of desserts.
BIO MILLEFLOWER HONEY GR. 300 Millefiori honey is produced in the central areas of Sicily, from flowers of Sulla, Cardo, Aneto, Achillea. It is the raw and spontaneous result of the natural work of bees that forage on the different flowers, without subsequent mixing. The flowering period & # 232; long and covers the month of June until the middle of & # 224; of the month of July. The honey that is produced & # 232; very aromatic and intense flavor, characterized by the strong presence of Dill and Achillea flowers. The color & # 232; medium dark liquid, which becomes amber with crystallization.
BIO DEHUMIDIFIED POLLEN GR. 120 Pollen is a collection of microscopic corpuscles contained in the anthers of flowers. They represent the male fertilizing element of the plant. After being harvested by bees, it appears as a multitude of grains ranging in color from red to purple, to brown, to yellow of various shades. These "balls" are formed by bees by mixing microscopic pollen grains with salivary secretions and suitable quantities of nectar and honey. Invigorating and stimulating, it gives a sense of well-being and euphoria; rebalancing of organic functions (especially nervous, endocrine and intestinal); general detoxifier. METHOD AND DOSAGE OF USE Pure and chewed for a long time, or diluted in water or warm herbal tea and sweetened with honey, preferably on an empty stomach. Adults one tablespoon a day (20-25 grams) for 1-3 months, once / twice a year. Children a spoon a day. (10-15 grams) for 1-3 months, once / twice a year. SPORTS FOOD Ideal for athletes, because it provides all the nutrients (carbohydrates, fibers, mineral salts, amino acids ...) in a thoughtful way and naturally rebalances the hydro-salt principle. thanks to the anti-fatigue effect that magnesium has on muscles, the use of pollen increases resistance to physical exercise, improving performance.
PROPOLIS DYEING Propolis is a natural substance produced by bees: the workers collect the resin from the buds of some plants, in particular poplars, birches, elms, oaks, they digest it partially thanks to enzymes contained in the salivary secretions and by combining it with pollen and wax, they give rise to a substance with an aromatic scent and extraordinary properties. It is mainly composed of resin, pollen, essential oils, minerals and organic compounds such as phenolic acids, flavonoids. Bees use it as a building material, to seal the cracks in the hive, but above all as a sterilant, to protect the hive from attack by harmful microorganisms. An indispensable substance for bees, it also becomes a great ally of man. In fact, the organic substances present in propolis give it antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and healing properties.It also acts as an immunostimulant by regulating the functions of the immune system.Its precious properties derive from its chemical composition which in turn is the sum of some factors: vegetable substances from which it derives, harvest season, species of bees and the procedure adopted for extraction; this means that its biological action also depends on its origin.
