Organic Pine Honey

The organic Pine Honey “FASILIS” is collected in the pine forests of Arcadia in Peloponnese and in Eboea at an altitude ranging from 800m-1300m during Spring (April-May) and Autumn (September-October). 

The spring pine honey is lighter (as far as concerns its color), clearer and more aromatic than the honey that is produced in autumn. The pine honey crystallizes slowly enough because of its low content in glucose (>18 months).

Its great nutritional value is based on the various substances that compose it. The most important of them are the trace elements, found at high concentration, that classify greek pine honey as honey with higher nutritional value.

After harvesting, the honey is carefully filtered and packed directly into glass jars in the modern facilities of the Fasilis family. The whole process does not exceed one month from the time of harvest. Honey is then stored in dark and dry spaces, at low temperature, ready to be released for consumption.

Honey crystallization and reset to original status 

Crystallized honey

Honey has a natural trend to crystallize. The crystallization of honey has nothing to do with its quality. In a vase full of honey, crystals begin to form first at the bottom and then at the rest of the vase. New crystals will be added daily and that gives a non-pleasant look to the honey. Crystallization makes honey difficult to use, as well. But, crystallized honey keeps all of its properties. 

Honey reset Reset :

In case that your favorite honey crystallizes, do not worry ! On the contrary, you should be glad that you have bought an excellent honey (impure honey does not crystallize). Crystallized honey can be reset to its original state by using a moderate heated bain-marie. Just heat up the honey and it will be th same as when you bought it. One may also leave the honey vase to heat up on a heating radiator for a few minutes, it will be fine.

Honey and its properties

-A legend claims that the body of Alexander the Great was secured in a glass coffin full of honey, to be preserved until it reached the burial location. The antiseptic and antibacterial properties of honey were already known.

-Honey contains 77% to 78% sugars (mainly glucose and fructose) and has very low moisture content, so it does not favor the growth of micro-organisms.

-Honey cosuming seems to be responsible for the longevity of many famous beekeepers (80 to 100 years).
