Honey Avi Lluís
Honey is the flower nectar picked up and transformed by bees. The composition, taste and colour is variable, it depends on the floral origins.
Nectar starts to being transformed into the bee’s esophagus, later they put it in honeycomb. During the night time, it starts the ripening process helped by wings movement, that allows humidity evaporation until to get 18% of humidiy. Then, it starts the cell capping process. It is just in this moment when honey is ready to be harvested. Harvest consists of removing the cap of cells and collecting honey using the centrifugal force.
Crystallisation of honey is a natural process that ensures that honey has not suffered too much heat during packaging process, because too hot causes a loss of properties. If you prefer more liquid honey, we recommend you to warm it with a bain-marie at 40ºC.
Thanks to transhumance we have different types of pure and handmade honey.
