We must agree that roasted or cooked chestnuts or a chestnut cake taste great; and so does chestnut honey. Delicious chestnut honey with its rich taste offers an unforgettable flavour experience in cold autumn and winter days.
Raw chestnut honey from Medex is honey of proven quality. You will recognise it by its dark brown or amber colour with a shade or red, and by its slightly bitter taste and strong aroma reminiscent of chestnut blossoms.
Chestnut honey contains the largest pollen content among all honey types; this significantly adds to its value and makes it an important part of your diet. The high pollen content contributes to its slightly bitter taste, but also to a strong aroma that adds to the taste of pastries, coffee, or warm milk. Chestnut honey is always clear and rarely crystallises.
It is unforgettable in cold winter days and is recommended for people with anaemia, fatigue, or insomnia. It also has beneficial effects to your digestive system. Eating chestnut honey before bedtime is a guarantee for a peaceful sleep.
You can eat chestnut honey on its own, use it as bread spread, or take advantage of its distinctive aroma and use it for baking. Use it as a coffee sweetener, or dissolve it in milk and it will rock you to sleep.
Natural honey slowly crystallises, but heating it up to 40 °C liquifies it and keeps all its natural properties and substances.
Store in a dark place with temperature below 25 °C.
Raw chestnut honey.
Honey is a natural sweet gift, given to us by bees that make it from flower nectar (floral honey) or from insect secretions that remain on trees as sticky liquid (honeydew honey). Floral honey types are wildflower honey, acacia honey, chestnut honey, lime honey, and canola honey; honeydew honey types are forest honey, fir honey, maple honey, oak honey, and spruce honey. Bees process nectar or honeydew, enrich it with their gland secretions, and store it in the beehive to ripen. Honey is the source of solar energy and life fuel in the beehive. It contains valuable nutrients, and is a rich nourishment and cosmetic substance.
