Oak honeydew honey

Category: Tag:

Honey produced mostly from oak trees.


A unique honey produced from a sweet substance called honeydew, a natural waste product excreted by aphids as a byproduct of consuming plant sap. The aphids eat the sap not so much for sugars but for the amino acids it contains. This means that most of the sugars are expelled by the aphid as honeydew, a substance that bees love.


Honeydew honey is chemically different from nectar and therefore regular blossom honey. It is usually darker with a higher mineral content, and has with a stronger taste and particular nutritional/therapeutic benefits.
