The autumn heather honey comes from one of the most important bee plants in Greece, heather or heather (Calluna vulgaris). Heather honey is obtained from the nectar of the heather and is a blossom honey. It is a honey with a strong, full-bodied and slightly salty, characteristic delicate aroma and a reddish or red-brown color with a "butter-like" light texture that leaves a pleasant feeling in the mouth. Heather honey is considered one of the best honeys. It is a honey of high nutritional value and particularly stimulates the human body. It is rich in bee pollen and silicon, barium and boron as well as dozens of natural nutrients, vitamins, enzymes and amino acids. Heather honey has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, with a focus on the urinary and digestive systems. It helps lower bad cholesterol. Research has shown that heather honey has a high phenol content that supports and prevents aging and improves overall health. Due to its high natural glucose content, it crystallizes between 1 and 3 months. Crystallization is a natural phenomenon, a natural change, but also evidence of natural, pure and unprocessed honey and has no influence on the nutritional and biological value of honey. With mild heating (water bath) it can be restored to its original state.
