Greek Honey. Online selling. Pure Gold and excellence to taste.

Greek honey also has a sustained but not excessive density, ideal for pouring over a dessert or for becoming a delicious and easily usable ingredient. Among the noblest varieties of Greek honey, Greek thyme honey certainly ranks on the first step of the podium for its delicacy and unmistakable taste. The best way to tell and describe the qualities of Greek organic honey is also an excellent culinary tip: “Taste it”!
Greek honey combines unique essences with its special softness and delicacy, which certainly make it one of the most renowned in the entire Mediterranean basin. It is so good that the ancient Greeks called it ambrosia, a food that Greek mythology reserved for the exclusive reserve of the gods. In fact, in Greece there are ideal conditions for the production of honey of the highest quality: the intense heat in summer, the widespread presence of wild aromatic plants, the almost absence of pollution (except for the metropolis of Athens of course …).

Greek Honey. Online selling. Description of honey.
The word honey seems to derive from the Hittite melit, a neutral form that is linked to the Latin term mel from which the figurative use of the term melle is also used. Many believe that sugar and honey are equally nutritious. Yet the latter has many virtues that sugar lacks. Peter Molan, professor of biochemistry and director of the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand, has been studying the beneficial virtues of honey for over 15 years. In one of his laboratory experiments, Dr. Molan sprinkled honey with seven types of bacteria usually responsible for wound infections. All seven types of bacteria have been neutralized by the precious bee product.
Greek Honey. Online selling. Properties
One of the most important functions of honey is antibacterial and antibiotic: many types of honey contain significant quantities of hydrogen peroxide, or hydrogen peroxide, the same that is usually used to disinfect wounds. The high temperatures to which honey is subjected during pasteurization neutralize some beneficial substances: to obtain the maximum bactericidal effect, raw, untreated honey is ideal. In addition to stopping superficial infections, honey eases the symptoms of stomach ulcers and is used to treat diarrhea which, especially in children, can be dangerous because it causes dehydration.
Honey is therefore effective against constipation, as it contains large amounts of fructose, a sugar capable of reaching the large intestine without being digested. Fructose also confers a particular sweetening power and a prolonged energetic effect because, while glucose is burned immediately, fructose has emollient properties thanks to which it remains “available” for the body longer.
The calories of honey are 304 kcal per 100g of product. Depending on the type of honey, the therapeutic properties also change: acacia honey has a positive effect on the digestive system, forest honey is indicated in influenza states, orange honey has healing properties, sunflower honey is anti-neuralgic, febrifuge, recommended against cholesterol. Yet heather honey has an antirheumatic, anti-anemic action, lime honey calms menstrual pains, is calming, diuretic and digestive, while wildflower honey has a detoxifying action on the liver.
