ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY

Nectar from orange blossoms. Citrically sweet Mediterranean spirit.

CHARACTERISTICS OF ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY

The bees produce this honey from the nectar of the flowers of different citrus fruits (Citrus spp.), such as orange, lemon and mandarin trees. This honey has an amber yellow colour and is very fragrant. It has a very smooth and fruity flavour. It is highly appreciated for its calming effect. It is a laxative and promotes fat assimilation.

It has a special aroma due to the methyl anthranilate, a natural substance that orange blossoms have and which reminds us of flowering orange trees. Its intensity and persistence depend on the harvest area and the richness of the citrus trees.

It is produced from the orange trees of southern Catalonia, within the Terres de l’Ebre Biosphere Reserve, and its harvest time begins in April and ends in May.

Thanks to the purity of our honey, the orange blossom honey crystallizes very quickly, in a compact, disorderly way and in medium crystals. We can change its texture if we heat it up in a double boiler (or bain-marie) at less than 40ºC.

Orange blossom honey has a strong calming effect, so this kind of honey is recommended for people who have trouble sleeping. It is also rich in potassium, boron, magnesium, calcium, selenium and other minerals.

If you have a cold, this honey mixed with lemon juice works as an antitussive and relieves sore throats. Orange blossom honey has healing effects for sores

Thanks to its properties, orange blossom honey is very subtle and delicate on the palate. We can use it more therapeutically or use its nutritional benefits to make cosmetics.

Orange blossom honey is also highly recommended for preparing desserts thanks to its perfume and taste, which gives them an unimprovable character. For example, orange blossom honey is a perfect companion for borraines, a typical dessert of the Terres de l’Ebre.
