Zlati panj (Golden Beehive) Chestnut Honey
Why should chestnut aroma allure only in autumn? Chestnut honey will provide diversity at your table in all seasons.
The Zlati panj (Golden Beehive) raw chestnut honey from Medex is of Slovenian origin and has been certified with the Red Swallow national quality mark – a symbol of higher quality. The highest quality is ensured and maintained through additional manufacturing control and control of the product on the shelves, which are exercised by an independent certification body approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment.
What makes the Zlati panj chestnut honey different are its two main properties, essential for determining honey quality: the content of HMF, which indicates overheating, and the content of water. The Zlati panj chestnut honey fulfils the higher quality requirements: it contains less than 18 % water and less than 15 mg HMF per 1 kg honey (according to the Directive and Regulation relating to honey, honey can contain up to 20 % water and 40 mg HMF per 1 kg honey).
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. It also tastes great as a coffee sweetener and it adds to the taste of natural juices and teas.
Natural honey slowly crystallises, but heating it up to 40 °C liquifies it again and keeps all its natural properties and substances.
Store in a dark place with temperature below 25 °C.

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.
