Honey is made by bees from the nectar of flowers. It is basically used to sweeten foods. But it also has various health benefits.
Honey is made up of approximately 80% sugar (glucose, fructose, maltose) and 20% water. We also find in honey residues of pollen, sources of vitamins (B1 to B9), variable trace elements depending on the nature of the soil (potassium, magnesium, calcium, etc.), proteins, lipids, acids and enzymes. A rich composition that allows it to possess many virtues:

  • Antiseptic and antibiotic properties
  • Anti-inflammatory and healing properties
  • Antitussive properties
  • Digestive properties
  • Antioxidant properties

Many kinds of honey can be seen on market stalls. As tastes evolve, here are the most familiar to consumers.

Monofloral honeys:
This category of honey has a particular taste that evokes the flower from which each one comes.

Acacia honey , for example, is a blond and liquid honey with a delicate taste which does not alter the nature of the tea and which, in addition to favoring intestinal transit, is not contraindicated in people with diabetes.
Chestnut honey , on the other hand, is a very liquid dark honey with an extremely powerful aroma and taste. It has properties that make it an excellent pick-me-up and tonic for the veins.
Rosemary honey , reputed to be beneficial to the liver and for its stimulating properties, is yellowish with a fruity flavor. It is also a good ally for the winter.
Lavender honey is a clear honey when it is liquid but which crystallizes quite quickly and then becomes whitish. Very aromatic, it also has a positive effect on heart and respiratory disorders.
Heather honey , brown and strong in taste, is a well-known anti-anemic and antiseptic.
Other honeys including oak honey, eucalyptus honey and rapeseed honey also have their own specific tastes and properties.

Polyfloral honeys:
Other names of honeys come from their method of cultivation. For example, certain honeys called " mountain honey " come from flowers in high altitude meadows and therefore have the properties of several plants but also pronounced flavors. The color of this honey can range from brown to whitish depending on the concentrations of oak and boxwood honeydew in the region. The term "all-flower honey" designates a honey harvested at the end of each season and whose cultivation is spread over several blooms. Its taste reflects the flowers of all the territory from which it comes.

As their name suggests, spring and summer honeys are obtained from flowering in these seasons. The former is clear and has a delicate scent from various trees, boxwood and acacia or linden flowers. The second comes from several flowers that bloom in summer including lavender, sunflower or honeysuckle.

Popular honeys:
The honey market is constantly growing. Indeed, changes in agriculture have led to the gradual disappearance of clover, sainfoin or alfalfa honey, once very popular. Over time and the introduction of other varieties and aromas from neighboring countries of France and overseas departments, we learn about other cultures.

Coming from Italy, for example, arbutus honey is renowned for its slight bitterness and is very popular with fine gourmets. Arrived on the market in the last decade, metcalfa honey, a syrupy and fruity brown honey is mainly grown in the Mediterranean. Fir honey is a dark, even blackish colored honey that is in great demand due to its very mild taste.
