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.
