Like all Greek organic honey, oak honey is rich in polyphenols and phenolic acids, demonstrating significant antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory activity. In fact, its total phenolic content is particularly high and brings it to the top of all Greek Honey, in terms of antioxidant properties, which according to studies by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece are stronger antioxidants than the famous manuka honey, which in recent years has flooded the world market advertised for its biological action. In addition, the content of oak honey is very high in iron and other trace elements.
Elder honey has a particularly dark color, almost black. As honeydew honey, it sugars very slowly, remaining thick for quite a long time.
Oak 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 ruggedness and endurance.
Oak honey belongs to the category of honey produced from honeydew: honeydew is a sticky substance secreted by insects that parasitize the bark of the oak tree, which bees collect and make honey from. Our bees collect honey secretions from the buds and leaves of the trees undisturbed and away from any polluting human activity. We have chosen for the collection one of the largest and densest forests of the Peloponnese, the famous oak forest of Foloi, at the foot of Erymanthos, between Ilia and Arcadia, applying regenerative beekeeping practices that meet the highest standards of sustainable and environmental friendly processes.
