Medex lime honey is high quality honey of Slovenian origin with the Red Swallow national quality mark - a symbol of higher quality.
The Zlati panj (Golden Beehive) lime honey is honey 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 lime honey different is its two main properties, essential for determining honey quality: the content of HMF, which indicates overheating, and the content of water. The Zlati panj lime 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).
Lime honey is bright yellow with a distinctive scent of lime blossoms, and with outstanding, long-lasting and slightly spicy menthol flavour. It works as a beneficial treatment during colds, and is recommended for people with low blood pressure. It is not necessarily clear and it usually crystallises rapidly.
You can eat lime honey on its own, or you can spread it on bread or add it to tea, flakes, yogurt, ricotta, pudding, or pastries. You can also mix it with warm water, milk, tea, or cider vinegar. When preparing drinks, be careful not to put honey in liquid that is too hot, since its most important substances lose their healing properties at high temperatures.
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.
Raw lime honey of Slovenian origin.
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.
