Honeydew honey

honeydrew miellat rarest honey natural medecine virtues health

It is above all simple honey (just like other bee honeys). But the particularity of honeydew honey is the honeydew flavour it gives off and the virtues it possesses. Honeydew honey comes from insects that like to peck the tender parts of flowers and plants. These insects include ants and aphids, for example, or even mealybugs that feed on the sap from the latter.

Unable to digest all their crops, they simply reject the sweet substances. These constitute honeydew. This liquid substance consists of 90% sugar, and in detail, it is made up of 27 glucoses, 16 water, 38 fructoses, 9 dextroses, 5 melezitoses, and 7 amino acids.

To generate this honeydew honey, bees consume honeydew, the famous sweet substance rejected by insects after piercing certain fragile portions of plants. In this way, the bees collect these remains and use them little by little. Of course, they take them to their hive to process the honey itself. It is therefore the use of the honeydew-forming substance that gives the honeydew honey its flavour.

Virtues

  • anaemia control
  • fight against respiratory and urinary alterations
  • antioxidant
  • antibacterial
  • destroys ultra-resistant bacteria
