A very delicate honey, this organic raw Acacia honey harvested in Campania is a natural sweetener with a very delicate vanilla and candy aftertaste. The raw Acacia honey crystalizes due to a natural process. Our honey is 100% Italian.
Acacia honey with its delicate flavour and a soft, floral and fruity scent goes well with blue cheeses, such as Gorgonzola. Additionally, due to its lightness it can also be combined with semi-mature cheeses, such as provolone or pecorino, to soften their flavour.
Not all honey is created equal. In fact, not all “honey” is even real honey, a number of ingredients are often added to what we buy as “honey”. Raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb, and is honey in its purest form. 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 and to get the maximum benefits from honey, it's important to purchase it in its raw organic form, because regular honey has been filtered and processed, losing some of its nutritional properties along the way.
The health benefits of raw honey are endless, check our honey guide
