The characteristics of forest honey
Of plant origin, forest honey can vary from one harvest to another. During the summer solstice period, bees collect nectar and pollen that may be found on meadow flowers such as poppies or brambles. They also collect the many chestnut flowers in the forest. But also the honeydew from the many pines, oaks and chestnut trees that populate the forest of Fontainebleau.
Its harvest period depends mainly on the flowering periods but generally it starts in mid-June and can sometimes last 1 month. This honey also has a rather brown color and a woody taste. Note that the color of this honey is variable and depends notably on the proportion of honeydew it contains.
At the time of harvest, the honeydew is often dark, especially in a liquid state. Nevertheless, the forest honey takes on beautiful brown tints that can turn grey once crystallization is complete.

Is your honey labtest ?Yes of course, lab tested in Katmandu and Paris. You can ask for it at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is Mad Honey legal ?Mad honey is legal in the European countries and in the majority of the others, this honey is however prohibited in India, Mexico, Brazil, Canada & Australia
How long does honey keep?The date on the jars is an indication of freshness: honey can be kept for several years without ever becoming unfit for consumption, but over time it may lose some of its aromas and taste characteristics.
Is your honey pasteurized?Absolutely not, on the contrary, we prioritize a natural honey which will not have undergone any transformation, except a light filtering to remove the large particles of propolis, pollen and wax which are naturally found in honey. In order to be a supplier of BEELIXIR, each beekeeper is bound by a set of specifications.
Why is there mottling in my jar?Honey has a low thermal conductivity, unlike glass jars. Under the effect of a variation in temperature, the jar undergoes a slight expansion while its contents will keep its shape. An empty space is then created and will be occupied by air: marbling appears. They are a sign of low humidity of the honey and therefore of a good storage capacity. They prove that the honey has not undergone any handling that could alter its structure: heating, mixing, etc...
Is it normal for my honey to change its appearance?Honey crystallizes naturally. There can therefore be two phases if it is in the process of crystallization (liquid phase on top, solid phase underneath).
Is honey lower in calories than sugar?Honey is 25% less caloric than sugar (100g sugar = 400 kcal, 100g honey = 300 kcal), and its sweetening power is 1.3 times higher than sucrose.
Can I put my honey in the fridge?It is not recommended to keep your honey in the fridge. The cold increases the phenomenon of crystallization and therefore hardening.
Crystallized honey? You put sugar in it?Each beekeeper who is a partner of Beelixir is bound by a simple and yet very strict set of specifications, as there are no compromises. We do not add sugar to our honey. It is moreover forbidden by law. This fraudulent process is called the adulteration of honey. An article of the CETAM of Lorraine denounces the frauds (labelling --> origin) or adulteration on the honeys of China. Most often sold in a totally opaque way under the name "honeys from EC / non-EC countries". This name, which is legal, often covers a high proportion of honey from China.
I have two identical honeys at home, but they don't taste the same. Is that normal?The taste of a honey is the result of several uncontrollable factors: The climate, the gleaned flowers, etc... In this respect, a honey will always be a unique, 100% natural product, for which bees decide to eat the flowers according to their desires. The taste can therefore vary slightly from one harvest to another.
Délicieux! Le bon équilibre entre le gout fort du Miellat et la touche fruitée des fleurs de forêt.
