Honey of acacia flowers is the most liquid of all honey types. Fresh honey is transparent and of a light color. It has a soft caramel taste without tartness and a rich floral aroma that reminds of spring even in the coldest and nastiest weather. This honey never has slight bitterness that can sometimes be present in other kinds of honey.

This honey can be stored for a long time in the form of syrup due to the presence of fructose that is digested by human body in the easiest way. When granulated, this honey type becomes lard-like and turns milky-white.

Acacia honey is one of the most valuable honey types that is always in demand. Bees gather it from two acacia species — white and yellow, and this fact influences honey color (in the range from light-yellow to almost colorless). 1 hectare of plants can give about 1,700 kg of honey. White acacia is in blossom for up to two weeks, and only during one of them it remains nectar-bearing. This honey is gathered at the end of spring or at the beginning of summer.

Any type of acacia honey contains approximately 36% of glucose and 41% of fructose. It also has chromium, copper, lithium and manganese. There are also great amounts of vitamins А, В, С and Е. Total number of biologically useful and active substances in this natural product approaches 60. 100 g of acacia honey contain about 77% of carbohydrates and up to 3% of proteins. In other words, this food product provides the body with 335 kcal of pure energy.

Due to the high fructose content acacia honey is digested in the body very well and suits diabetic or children’s nutrition perfectly.
