With rich aroma and velvety taste, our honey has the most nutrients, compared to other honeys, because of its high comprehensiveness in trace elements and mineral salts. It is a delicious combination of Blossom and Pine honey from Greek plains and mountains of Serres’ prefecture. The phenomenon of crystallization is rarely observed in pine honey because it is low in sugars. It is being produced in April and from August to November. Pine honey, which is a mixture of sugars and other ingredients, provides our body with a number of nutrients. Regarding to carbohydrates, honey mainly consists of fructose (approx. 38.5%) and glucose (approx. 31%) and also smaller amounts of maltose, sucrose and galactose.
