Curiosities about honey…
Have you ever wondered what honey is made of, precisely? Two-thirds of the product are simple sugars, including glucose. The remaining one-third is composed of water, proteins, and minerals.
Honey must be harvested once it is mature, and this is one of the main tasks of the beekeeper! In addition to beekeeping, the beekeeper is responsible for collecting the fruits produced by the bees. The time of year for honey harvesting is not fixed; it always depends on the flowering seasons and the type of honey that the bees produce. For example, wildflower honey is usually extracted from April to September, during the warmer months.
