Nectaflor blossom honey: a truly delicious natural product
The Ancient Egyptians already knew that honey is more than just a sweet. It was revered by them as a food fit for Gods. For instance, pharaohs were buried with slices of honeycomb. Even today, honey is and will remain one of the most valuable gifts bestowed on us by nature. And because we appreciate it, it is also important to us to have a close relationship with our beekeepers which provide us with this exquisite product.
Apart from the fact that it sweetens your day, blossom honey has a big advantage over many other spreads: it is extremely healthy. The enzymes in honey not only have an antimicrobial effect but they are also rich in antioxidants. In addition to the anti-inflammatory effect attributed to it, honey therefore also has the property of being a free radical scavenger. This is because antioxidants are also assumed to counter damage to the body’s cells resulting from certain oxygen reactions (by free radicals). The fact that honey also tastes good is almost beside the point. However, even if this weren’t the case, would it be possible to resist the sweetness of this golden-coloured indulgence? nectaflor and Alta Terra blossom honey is a 100% pure natural product with many valuable ingredients.
Types of honey from the best apiaries
The nectar which thousands of bees collect from the individual flowers is transformed by the bees drop by drop into the most delicious blossom honey. Once enough honey has been produced for the bees, the honey sealed in the honeycombs is harvested and flung out. A lot of skill and experience is required during the blending process to produce blossom honey with a good consistency and well-balanced flavour.
