CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH MOUNTAIN HONEY
This kind of honey doesn’t come from the nectar of just one type of flower. It has a wide range of botanical origins, including sainfoin (Onobrichis Sp.), white clover (Trifolium sp.), Alpen rose or snow-rose (Rhododendron Ferrugineum), oregano (Origani Vulgare), aniseed (Pimpinella Anisum), wild blackberry (Rubus Ulmifolius Shot), thistle (Eryngium Sp.), and alpine clover (Trifolium Alpinum).
It has a light amber colour, an intense and persistent aroma and an intense taste in the mouth, depending on the flower species it is made from. High mountain honeys vary greatly according to the harvest area and altitude.
It is very rich in mineral salts and enzymes, anti-rheumatic and especially indicated for respiratory problems and urinary tract conditions.
