Honey

Honey is a sugary fluid produced from nectar or honeydew which honeybees collect from flowers or plants, transform in their stomach using special enzymes and store into honeycombs. Our honey is produced in places where plants are still undamaged and is not industrially processed. In fact, it is removed by the honeycombs through the traditional method of centrifugation and put into jams in its liquid form, as it comes out form the honeycombs. This means that our honey is not heat treated and/or in no other way processed so that its natural composition remains unaltered.

Palladino beekeeping company works honey with semi-automatic machineries made of stainless steel, stores it into plastic food containers of the capacity of 25 Kg. and then sells it into 1 Kg., 500, 250 and 50 gr. glass jams.

Our quality controls cover every step of honey production, from the bee farming up to the pouring of honey into jams and to the sale. Thanks to our professional expertise we can ensure the quality and traceability of all our products.

 

How and when

Unlike sugar, honey is easy to digest and assimilate; its metabolism produces neither fat accumulation nor an increase in the cholesterol levels. The recommended daily intake of honey is about 40 gr. Having dietary characteristics of great importance, honey can be eaten at any age: for breakfast or as afternoon snack, as sweetener in hot and cold drinks or in yogurt. It can be spread on bread and used for preparing a great variety of bittersweet dishes.

After a prolonged storage, due to natural causes honey can crystallize: in this case you can heat the jam in a bain-marie at 40 C and honey will soon turn to its liquid form again. To avoid possible product alterations, we recommend to store it in its solid form in a cool and dry place, but not in the fridge.
