How Bees Produce Pine Honey?
Turkish Pine Honey is a sweet and spicy honey, with a resinous fragrance, and dark amber color. The most significant property of Pine Honey is that it crystallizes late.
Pine honey is unusual honey because it is not produced by Bees that feed on the nectar of plant flowers. Since pine has no flowers, Turkish Pine Honey is produced by bees that collect honeydew (carbohydrates secretions) from a scale insect species called "Marchalina Hellenica", which lives on the sap of the Turkish pine trees.
Turkish pine honey is one of the rare types of honey. It is characterized by its innumerable benefits to the health of the body. It has a greater antimicrobial effect and supports in the cases of respiratory disorders, as well as containing a high percentage of antioxidants.
