Leros HonigThyme honey “Artemis”  is a product of exclusive quality and nutritional value, collected by beekeepers in the island Leros and standardized in the laboratory of honey processing and packaging, of the “KoiSPE”.

The Social Cooperative of Mental Health Sector, Dodecanese, Greece (KoiSPE) is  is a social business that aims to the social inclusion and employment of people with psycho-social disabilities. In 2004, the laboratory of honey processing and packaging was established, partly financed by the EU program LEADER+.

The honey is processed and standardized following the ISO 22000 / HACCP, and promoted to the market under the trademark “ARTEMIS” (Leros was the island of goddess Artemis).

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).
