Symbeeosis Organic Oak Honey is rich in polyphenols and phenolic acids, with significant antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory action. In addition, it has a very high content of iron and other trace elements. It has a particularly dark color, almost black. As a honeydew honey it sugars very slowly and remains viscous for quite a long time.
The oak tree (Quercus spp.) forms rich forests in almost all of Greece. It was one of the sacred trees of the ancient Greeks, dedicated to Zeus because of its robustness and strength. Oak honey belongs to the category of honey produced from honeydew: honeydew is a sticky substance secreted by insects that parasitize on the bark of the oak tree, which is then collected by bees and from which they produce honey. Our beehives collect honey far away from any polluting human activity. We have chosen one of the largest and most dense forests of the Peloponnese, Foloi Forest, at the foot of Erymanthos, between Ilia and Arcadia, applying beekeeping practices that meet the highest standards of sustainable and environmentally friendly procedures.
Why organic honey
Organic honey is rich in nutrients as it contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that can benefit our health.
The production of organic honey requires the use of organic farming methods. This means that no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are used at all. Thus, its production does not harm the environment and even serves to reduce soil and water pollution. Organic beehives collect the nectar of the flowers and the honeydew, without coming into contact with antibiotics often used in conventional beehives. Organic honey is therefore completely free of chemical residues that may be found in conventional honeys.
Overall, choosing organic Greek honey helps protect the environment, promotes our health and supports the local economy. It is an excellent choice for our daily diet.
