Honey and its forms
Natural honey can come in two forms – liquid or crystallized. The first, professionally called strained honey, we usually observe for some time after honeys collection. Honey crystallization begins almost immediately, and its pace depends on many factors: the density of honey, its type, conditions and temperature at which it is stored. The entire process takes from several weeks to a year. The crystallized form of honey is called croup (or ditch). The chemical composition of honey does not change during crystallization, so honey retains its healing and nourishing properties.
Where does honey come from?
Bees like flowers in which the nectar has a sugar concentration of 30 - 60%. They need to visit 2 to 8 million flowers to produce 1 kilogram of honey. A bee colony in optimal conditions can produce several kilograms of honey a day.

The origin of our honey
Our honey comes from a proven, trusted source. The apiary that supplies Eco Valley Spain, is situated in the ice-marginal valley of the Leba river, among forests and hills, surrounded by yet unspoilt nature. Bees have excellent living and working conditions there. Single-flavor honey is obtained by transporting the hives, for example, from a buckwheat field to a rape field or into a forest. The bees then collect nectar from the nearest flowers.
