About honey

What is honey?

Honey is never the same, so the colour, consistency, taste and smell can vary.Honey is a natural product, which is produced by the bees from the nectar they collect from plants. Honey is a pure product, which means there is nothing added to it or taken away from it. Nectar and honeydew are tissue fluids of plants and include sugars, water and many minerals. The bees extract their gland secretion, saliva liquid and enzymes to the nectar. Invertase enzyme breaks cane sugar into glucose and fructose. This transformation leads to a higher sugar content in the nectar. This enables bees to produce a stronger sugar solution, that has only about 18% of water in it.

The consistency of honey is affected by all the plants bees have visited to collect nectar and pollen. Honey comes in dark and light varieties; crystal structure varies a lot and the palette of tastes is vast. Even in the same beehive and the same place you can experience totally different honeys every year based on the rhythm of blooming and the timing of the bees to be able to collect the honey due to a favourable flying weather.

Consistency of the honey

Honey is never the same, so the colour, consistency, taste and smell can vary a lot depending on the origin flowers of the nectar. Honey that has a higher natural fructose levels is more liquidity, when the honey types with more glucose tend to stay more solid. Every honey person has their own favourite; some think that the light, spread-like honey is the right one, when the others prefer the liquid types. Both types of honey are real authentic honeys.

Finnish nature gives the optimal circumstances for unique honey

Finnish nature gives the optimal circumstances for unique honey

Finnish honey industry benefits from the clean and undisturbed nature, professional beekeepers and the high quality of the production equipment. Our intense, bright summers enable the production of unique honey varieties even with the relatively short harvesting season. The northern nature has ensured, that most of the different types of flowers are blooming at different times. That is why in Finland it is not as challenging to produce monofloral honey than it is in central and southern Europe. The nature in Finland has a lot of variety and the differences also give their flavour to the honey. The most important honey producing plants in Finland are fireweed, raspberry, white clover, canola, dandelion, blueberry, lingonberry, heather, cloudberry, linden and other garden plants and harvested plants like honey flower, buckwheat and mustard.

You can find a vast selection of high-quality natural honeys from different flowers and regions. Our internet shop is there for you every day of the year.
