Spanish heather honey is produced by honey bees, which collect the nectar of the heather. Like all honey, heather has high properties that make it an ally for health. In fact, articles have been published (Revista Veterinaria 2013) that claim that heather honey is one of the best honeys to kill bacteria, even better than the famous manuka honey.
But there is a problem, and that is that the antibacterial property of heather honey comes almost exclusively from hydrogen peroxide, a natural chemical that is produced by certain enzymes present in honey. Unfortunately, these enzymes are easily destroyed by heat and light. Even so, pure heather honey has earned its reputation as a super healing food. It is a highly priced food and is not usually easy to get, although in our specialized online store you can always buy heather honey.
It also has another special quality, it is gelatinous in its natural form, thanks to a substance called thixotopism, but over time or if we shake it, it will become a more liquid state.
This sweet of the heather is reddish / dark amber and has a slightly bitter taste with smoky notes and fruity woody aromas. The speed of crystallization is very slow.
Another unusual feature of these pure honeys, is their high moisture content, which is usually associated with fermentation (sometimes can reach 25%). This characteristic causes the bees to have a harder time removing the moisture before sealing it in the cells.
These properties and exclusive characteristics combine it into a peculiar and valued honey. For this reason, in "MielEsHoney", the online store specialized in beekeeping food products, guarantees the quality of the product. You can also buy heather honey online in a comfortable and safe way.
