Why we love it
Raw honey is the best honey you can purchase. This very delicate Acacia organic raw honey harvested in Tuscany is a natural sweetener with a very delicate vanilla and candy aftertaste.
Raw honey is the best honey available and it is the purest and most natural honey, very often a number of ingredients are added to cheap “honey”. Raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb, and it is unfiltered, unheated and unpasteurized, processes which can destroy the natural vitamins (high in vitamin C and B vitamins), minerals and enzymes found in honey.
The health benefits of raw honey are endless, these are just the main ones:
Anti-viral and anti-fungal properties
Contains polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant

Soothes sore throats and is a natural expectorant (i.e. is great to eat when you have a cold)
Stabilizes blood pressure and balances blood sugar levels
Boosts immune function

Promotes digestive health
As an alkaline-forming food, helps combat chronic illness
It is an energy booster
It helps fighting allergies
It is loaded with nutrients
The artisan who made it
Sant'Agata honey was born out of the passion of Francesco. He set up Sant Agata honey in 2006, the year when he started the beekeeping activity. The honey business was born out of passion for bees and for nature with the aim to produce unique products "as the nature creates" and "as it used to be".
Francesco’s passion for bees began in Greece, during a trip in the Kos Island - "I did not eat honey and i did not know the bees world" says Francesco. In the Kos Island Francesco met a beekeepers family that introduced him to Greek culture and to bees world and he never regretted it.
